Legionella control training and compliance with ACoP L8 is offered by WCS Group through a range of fully accredited courses, C&G and Ofqual courses, seminars and practical-skills-based workshops.
These have been specifically developed to meet the needs of candidates at all levels of technical and non-technical experience – ‘Duty Holder’, ‘Responsible Person’, site managers, water cooling tower operators, operations staff, HSE and senior management.
There are also tailored Legionella awareness and infection control courses for healthcare providers and a series of courses adapted for leisure site operators and swimming pool and spa maintenance and duty holders.
“Those specifically appointed to implement the Legionella control measures and strategies should be suitably informed, instructed and trained and their suitability assessed. They must be properly trained to a level that ensures tasks are carried out in a safe, technically competent manner, and receive regular refresher training.”
