L8 Training

It is a requirement of L8 and HSG274 that those who are appointed to manage water systems and those that carry out the control measures and strategies should be suitably informed, instructed and trained.

With this in mind we have developed our L8 Legionella Awareness Training courses to enable an understanding of the guidelines. Our training courses are flexible and can be tailored to your specific requirements. Courses are held at either client’s premises or an external conference / training venue.
