ACOP L8 compliance and Legionnaires risk

Develop Training provide a range of training courses created in partnership with City and Guilds (including managing the risks of legionella) to improve design, operational and managerial control. Legionella bacteria courses support compliance with the Approved Code of Practice (ACOP L8) Fourth Edition.

Outbreaks of Legionnaire’s disease continue to be a recurring problem across the UK, and one that should be a concern for almost any industry sector. High profile cases over the years include hotels, hospitals, factories and garden centres.

Courses to build Legionella awareness

Develop Training Limited has developed a range of training created in partnership with City & Guilds. Develop’s Legionella awareness qualification provides learners with an understanding of the risk, how to control it and the warning signs to look for in areas where the bacteria can replicate, providing employers with employee vigilance as the first line of Legionella defence.

The training covers steps that maintenance teams can take to keep their systems safe.

  • Avoiding water temperatures and conditions that favour the growth of legionella and other micro-organisms.
  • Ensuring water cannot stagnate anywhere in the system by keeping pipe lengths as short as possible or removing redundant pipework.
  • Keeping the system and the water in it clean.
  • Controlling release of water aerosol.

Each of our courses have been specially developed to meet the needs of risk managers working at all levels of technical competence and experience. From Facilities Managers to Health and Safety specialists and engineering staff, our courses are ideal for ensuring those responsible for the control of legionella related risks stay educated and competent.

Nationwide training centres

We run our courses at locations across the UK including; Derby, York, Swindon, Linlithgow & Manchester.

We also offer on-site training if required. To find out further information please contact us on 0800 876 6708 or email customerservice@developtraining.co.uk.
