Legionella Awareness Training

Legionella bacteria can cause serious harm to health if not properly controlled. Our online Legionella training course highlights the danger of Legionella, as well as how to prevent and control outbreaks in the workplace.

What is Phoenix's Legionella Awareness Training?

Organisations responsible for buildings must meet the requirements of the revised Approved Code of Practice (ACOP) on Legionnaires disease. If you are a building owner, premises manager, or maintenance worker, it is your legal obligation to keep staff away from these deadly bacteria.

Outbreaks of Legionella, one such bacterium, can occur where water is maintained at a temperature high enough to encourage bacteria growth. Therefore, harmful Legionella bacteria can develop in many buildings containing water storage or distribution systems. It can cause serious harm to health if not properly controlled.

Taking our online Legionella Awareness training course is the first step in understanding the risks and preventive measures you can take when dealing with Legionella. Our Legionella course will teach you the key facts about Legionella, as well as the signs of its development and how to manage the risks it poses.
