Legionella bacteria are commonly found in natural water supplies such as ponds. When these bacteria have the opportunity to multiply in an industrial or domestic water system, they can become a health problem. If the bacteria are inhaled in contaminated droplets of water (aerosol) and settle in the lungs, people can become infected and develop Legionnaires’ disease or other conditions.
This course targets the water management jobs that front line workers do on a regular basis to break the chain of events that can lead to a death from Legionnaires’ disease.
This online Legionella training course explains what legionella is, how legionella bacteria grow, and how exposure to harmful levels of the bacteria can be prevented. Information is provided on symptoms to watch for and to report.
It also explains the need to break the chain from contamination of water to infection as part of the process of water systems risk assessment and management. Learners will see how the jobs they have been asked to do play a part in breaking the chain of events that can lead to illness and death from Legionnaires’ Disease.
Examples of tasks and typical frequencies are given for hot and cold water systems, evaporative cooling systems and other systems, such as spa pools, sprinklers and vehicle washes.
