Water hygiene training

There is a requirement for people who are responsible for the upkeep of buildings to be well informed and trained on various different compliance subjects. Under general health and safety law, as an employer or person in control of a premises (eg a landlord), you have health and safety responsibilities and you need to take suitable precautions to prevent or control the risk of exposure to Legionella. 

Details of the specific law that applies to this can be found in part 1 of the Approved Code of Practice and guidance: Legionnaires disease: The control of legionella bacteria in water systems

So, what if you read the guidance and none of it makes sense? What if you find you need certain areas or details explained? Perhaps you are asking yourself: is this water system a risk? Who can help me understand this water system or my obligations to ensure the risk is reduced for this water?

Sweetbriar Ltd have designed several training programs to help you answer these questions. These training courses can be at delivered at our office in Chandlers Ford, Southampton or we can travel to your site and carry out the training at your premises.
