This course is accredited with CPD and recognised by ILM, part of the City & Guilds Group.
It is the duty of the Water Safety Group [WSG], including the Responsible Person [RP] to ensure their organisation complies with regulatory, legislative, and guidance requirements for the management of ‘water safety’.
The term ‘water safety’ includes those risks from biological, physical, chemical, and radiological hazards. The approach to managing these risks will depend on the type of organisation, the types of water risk systems, and the susceptibility of those who are exposed.
This course will provide the WSG and RP with an understanding of these water safety risks associated with Legionnaires’ disease, Pseudomonas aeruginosa [Pa], and Scalding. The course covers ACOP L8 and HTM04-01 guidance to ensure proactive management is established, overlaid with the BS8680 code of practice for Water Safety Plan [WSP], covering the elements of what a WSP may need to contain, how to develop a WSP for an organisation ensuring ‘control strategies’ are defined.
A ‘control strategy’ for managing the risk of waterborne pathogens is to use temperature control for water. Hot water storage temperatures required being 60OC. As a result of the temperature control being applied, this now creates a scald risk for those at particular risk [very young, very elderly, infirm, or significantly mentally or physically disabled people or those with sensory loss]. The risk of managing waterborne pathogens with temperature control now creates an additional risk that needs to be considered, the risk of scalding from the hot water.
