Legionella Awareness Training for Building Operators

Are you the owner or operator of a building? Did you know your legal responsibilities under HSE ACoP L8 – Control of Legionella Bacteria in Water Systems?

Legionella awareness is vital to protect the health and safety of people in your building, and protect you from liability in the event of a problem.

Avoid the risk – get your training completed now.

Do I need a Legionella Awareness training?

Yes – from a legal perspective and a health perspective. Legionnaires’ disease is a waterborne form of pneumonia with an alarmingly high mortality rate. If you can’t show proof of staff competence and training that leads to preventative measures in the event of an outbreak, you will be held legally responsible.

Legionella bacteria is found in water, which means it can contaminate areas and appliances in your building, including water tanks, air conditioners, plumbing systems, cooling towers, spray systems, hot tubs and more.


Every building has water, therefore every building operator needs to be vigilant about legionella.
