Guardian Water Treatment launches Legionella training course

Guardian Water Treatment has launched a new bespoke Legionella awareness course for cooling tower operators, ideal for building and facilities managers and maintenance staff.

Delivered on-site at a client's premises, training is tailored to the specific needs of a system and takes place over a three week timeframe, allowing candidates to utilise their learning straight away.

Aimed at building maintenance engineers who may have many duties in addition to checking cooling towers, the training is designed to get away from classroom-based lectures and give site staff hands-on guidance for their specific systems.

Cooling towers are open circuit systems and therefore particularly susceptible to Legionella. Guardian Water Treatment's training covers ACoP L8 legislation, cooling tower operation, weekly testing, and any site specific requirements, offering everything needed for safe and efficient operations.

Steven Booth, associate director for Guardian Water Treatment, said: 'As cooling towers are one of primary culprits when it comes to the spread of Legionella bacteria, it's essential that those responsible for their upkeep and safe running understand the dangers and how to prevent them.

''Every cooling tower is different, however, with varying operational and environmental factors affecting conditions. Because of these variables, we feel that a bespoke, site specific course is a far safer and more user-friendly option for businesses, allowing candidates to put theory into the practice of their day-to-day role straight away.

'By revisiting the site, we can be sure that when we sign-off a trainee as competent, they truly understand how to apply what they've been taught.'

Guardian Water Treatment's bespoke cooling tower training is structured as follows:

  • Week 1: Overview of ACoP L8, including HSG274 Part 1 and site specific training on testing and inspection.
  • Week 2: Operation theory, site specific testing and inspection.
  • Week 3: Brief recap of test procedure and final competence sign off.

Delivered on a one-to-one basis by Guardian Water Treatment's expert team, the candidate will receive a certificate of competency on successful completion.

Guardian Water Treatment is a member of the Legionella Control Association.
