Legionella Awareness Advanced Online

Legionellosis is the collective name given to the pneumonia-like illness caused by legionella bacteria. This includes the potentially fatal legionnaires’ disease, as well as the similar but less serious conditions.

Any water system that has the right environmental conditions can become a source of legionella bacteria. Cooling towers, evaporative condensers and whirlpool spas are particularly susceptible but all water systems can pose a risk.

This online course is aimed at duty holders, nominated responsible persons and those with operational responsibility for the management of the services of a building. It meets the training and awareness requirements of relevant legislation and regulations including L8, COSHH and the Health and Safety at Work Act 1974.

We are sorry you had this issue, unfortunately the ‘new’ browser from Microsoft, EDGE, does not run HTML5 very well, the latest language that the industry uses for writing courses and web pages. Consequently all online training providers advise that Google chrome or Firefox are used to run their courses (these browsers are free to download and we can provide the links). If we are contacted we are always more than happy to help resolve any issue.
