The EssentialSkillz Legionella Awareness online training provides training based on L8, the Approved Code of Practice and Guidance on the regulations relating to the control of legionella bacteria in water systems, and on the technical guidance provided in all three parts of HSG 274 (evaporative cooling systems, hot and cold water systems and other risk systems such as fountains and whirlpools).
L8 is clear that all employees involved in work that might expose an employee or other person to legionella must be provided with the “information, instruction and training on the significant findings of the risk assessment and the appropriate precautions and actions they need to take to safeguard themselves and others.” This Legionella training provides the generic elements of this, but the specific details of each organisation’s risk assessment and control scheme must be covered in addition to this course.
This online Legionella Awareness training explains what legionella is, how legionella bacteria grow, and how exposure to harmful levels of the bacteria can be prevented. Information is provided on symptoms to watch for and to report. Within the course, learners will see how any of the jobs they have been asked to do play a part in breaking the chain of events that can lead to a death from Legionnaires’ Disease.
Case studies are used to explain the consequences of failing to carry out appointed water management tasks, and to highlight the lessons learnt, such as the 4 Cs of water management: Control, Co-operation, Communication, Competence.

Our Legionella Awareness course can integrate with JAWS ® a widely available text-to-speech integration to help visually impaired users engage with the same, unabridged and high-quality compliance training as their colleagues.
On successful completion, learners receive a personalised certificate which includes the learner’s name, score and date of completion. Certificates can be viewed, downloaded and printed off at any time to serve as a record of compliance.
Create your own question and answer bank to test your users on the key information that they need to know to be fully compliant. Set core questions to appear in the test section that users are required to pass so that crucial learning points are reinforced.
Generate 10 random questions from a bank of 20 to test your user’s retention and understanding of key content.
As training administrator, you can configure the passing score that users need to complete the course. Set your own grade boundaries to ensure your training complies with the standards set out by your organisation.
The courses provides a useful introduction or a refresher for three audiences, Someone appointed as the dutyholder for Legionella, Someone appointed by the dutyholder to be the responsible person, Some asked to carry out some of the tasks within a control scheme which do not involve specialist testing.
