At Absolute water compliance, we understand that Legionella awareness training is crucial for keeping your employees, tenants, and customers safe.
Legionella is a type of bacteria that can cause severe pneumonia-like illness called Legionnaires' disease, which can be life-threatening. This bacteria thrives in water systems, especially in warm temperatures.
H&SWA 1974, Management Regulations, & CoSHH are all regulations that highlight the need to provide employees with suitable training. It is well documented that the HSE believe that poor training is a factor that has contributed to previous outbreaks of legionnaires’ disease.
Not only does Legionella awareness training reduce the risk of Legionnaires' disease outbreaks, but it also helps your organization comply with legal and regulatory requirements and protects your brand's reputation.
In addition, conducting Legionella awareness training demonstrates your organisation's commitment to health and safety, which can improve the morale and productivity of your employees and ultimately lead to lower absenteeism and higher employee retention.
Absolute Water compliance is able to carry out online or onsite training, bespoke to your needs.
Investing in Legionella awareness training is a smart decision that can help protect your employees, your customers, and your bottom line. So, don't wait any longer, get your employees trained today and ensure a safer tomorrow.
