    Compliance and Knowledge Gaps

    Regulations can be difficult to follow and are sometimes updated without your knowledge, making it difficult for you and your whole team to stay up-to-date. This is only made more of an issue by varying standards across different regions and types of facilities. Correctly carrying out Legionella control in one facility may not necessarily translate to another, and regulations for one type of facility may differ from the rest of your portfolio. 

    This has the potential to become overwhelming, especially as the number of facilities you manage grows.

    Assessing the Knowledge Gaps

    Complicating matters further are the prevalent knowledge gaps in understanding Legionella and its management. Many facility management teams lack detailed insight into how Legionella proliferates, the specific risks it poses in different environments, and the most effective control measures. 

    These gaps in knowledge can lead to inadequate risk assessments, ineffective control strategies, and ultimately, a failure to comply with health and safety standards. Beyond this, they pose real health hazards to building occupants, potentially leading to severe consequences.

    Our training courses are designed to fill these knowledge gaps, providing comprehensive, up-to-date information on Legionella control, tailored to the specific needs of each facility.

    Our training courses cover a broad spectrum of critical topics, ensuring that facility management teams are thoroughly equipped to tackle Legionella-related tasks confidently.
