E-Learning Course Content:

Legionella is the bacterium that can cause Legionnaires’ disease, a potentially fatal illness that affects over 250 people a year in the UK. It is important that all employees that could potentially come into contact with man-made water systems are aware of the risks and know their responsibilities with regard to the key hazards associated with Legionella.

This Legionella Awareness e-learning course provides an introduction to Legionella and explains how to protect the health and safety of workers and others by reducing the risks of Legionella in the workplace.

The e-learning can be provided as SCORM files, or on a subscription basis, whether hosted on your own Learning Management System, or using our, feature-rich, easy-to-use learning platform.
