Plumbing & Water Training Courses & Assessments.


Disinfection of Water Systems & Risk Assessment:

Course Overview / Introduction:

Under general health and safety law it is a legal requirement of employers and persons in charge of buildings to consider the risks from legionella. Legionnaire's Disease is caused by inhaling small droplets of water suspended in the air and is typical in areas where water is maintained at a temperature high enough to encourage growth such as cooling towers, spa pools and hot water systems used in both commercial and domestic properties.

This course has been designed to meet the training requirements of the revised Approved Code of Practice (ACOP) L8, and guidance for Legionnaires disease.
