Legionella Training

SOCOTEC specialises in Legionella risk management to ensure clients are compliant with the requirements of the HSE’s Approved Code of Practice L8. With this expertise and understanding, SOCOTEC’s Legionella training courses are designed to provide maximum support to everyone involved in the Legionella management and control process within their organisation.

Suitable and sufficient training of all staff involved in Legionella risk management is a key requirement of the regulations.  Indeed, the Health & Safety Executive has cited that insufficient management, lack of training and poor communication have all been major factors contributing to most outbreaks of Legionnaires' disease.  With both CIBSE CPD approval and City & Guilds Accreditation for our Legionella training courses, our delegates can be confident they will receive effective and suitable training to support them in managing Legionella risk effectively. 

Delivered by experienced, hands-on consultants, our Legionella training courses allow us to showcase and share our knowledge with clients, increasing their confidence and understanding of this complex subject.

SOCOTEC has delivered Legionella training courses for over 20 years, supporting and educating clients from a number of sectors. Courses are held in a number of locations nationwide, or alternatively, SOCOTEC can deliver the course at your site to minimise disruption to your normal working schedule.
