Our water safety training for Responsible Persons deals with the legal and management aspects of controlling the risk of Legionella and other waterbourne bacteria.
The term ‘water safety’ is a broad capture for risks associated from Legionnaires’ disease / Scalding / Pseudomonas aeruginosa [Pa]. The approach to managing these risks will depend on the type of organisation and the types of water risk systems and susceptibility of those who are exposed.
A control strategy for managing the risk of waterbourne 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 waterbourne pathogens with temperature control now creates additional risk that needs to be considered, the risk of scalding from the hot water.
It is the duty of the Water Safety Group [WSG], including the Responsible Person [Water] to ensure their organisation complies with regulatory, legislative and guidance requirements for the management of water safety.
This course will provide the WSG and RP with an understanding of these water safety risks, the course covers ACOP L8 and HTM04-01 guidance to ensure proactive management is established, overlaid with BS8680 code of practice for Water Safety Plan [WSP], covering the elements of what a WSP may need to contain and how to develop a WSP.
