Course Introduction

The EssentialSkillz Legionella 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).

This Legionella Online Training course takes on average 75 minutes to complete.

Course Content

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 training course 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.

Like all EssentialSkillz courses, this Legionella eLearning course can be customised to meet your needs, enabling your workforce to understand the specific policies and procedures developed for your organisation. A designated course administrator can edit the text and images within the course, and link to organisation-specific documentation, all at no extra cost.
