Legionnaires' disease is a severe form of pneumonia — lung inflammation usually caused by infection. It got its name from an infamous breakout of the disease in America in the 1970s. Though quite rare in the UK, Legionnaires' disease can lead to a number of life-threatening complications.

This course will look at where the disease comes from, the symptoms, and the common complications that can result from it. It will also look at the legal responsibilities and the process of risk assessment.

The main learning objectives of the course are as follows:

  • To have knowledge of the environments where Legionella bacteria are commonly found
  • To understand legal responsibilities in regard to preventing and monitoring Legionella
  • To know how to carry out a risk assessment to identify and control the hazards
  • To have an awareness of how to manage the risk and the control/prevention measures that can be used to reduce the risks from Legionella
  • To understand the importance of continually monitoring, reviewing, and updating the Legionella control measures
