Why is Legionella Training Necessary?
Management failings are invariably a root cause of all outbreaks of Legionnaires’ disease and one of the chief causes is lack of training and awareness, by management and operators, of the risks and how to control them. In its publication “Legionnaires’ disease: The Control of Legionella Bacteria in Water Systems” ACoP L8, the UK Health and Safety Executive specifically states that people involved in implementing precautionary measures should be adequately trained.
What courses are available?
Feedwater offers a range of standard and bespoke Legionnaires training courses covering all aspects of legionella awareness and control. These training courses can be tailored to your specific requirements and can cover topics such as:
- What is legionella, Legionnaires’ disease and legionellosis?

- Legionella Risk Assessment Training – How to identify and assess the risk of your water systems
