Managing Premises – Water/Legionella Training
When: 10:00 - 12:00, Friday 10 September 2021 Where: Caledonia House, Pentland Park, Saltire Centre, Glenrothes, KY6 2AL This event is being organised by Fife Voluntary Action Costs This event is free to attend but to encourage attendance and try and ensure a good turnout to benefit all delegates, we will charge a non-attendance fee of £20.00 per delegate. By submitting a booking for this event you agree to pay this fee for those delegates who have places booked but do not attend.
Cancellations can be received up to 5 working days ahead of the event, thus avoiding non-attendance fees. A cancellation will only be valid if we have confirmed it with you. You can send somebody else in place of a booked delegate without incurring a non-attendance fee.
It is too late to book a place for this particular session, sorry about that.
PLEASE NOTE: This training session must be done in person at our premises in Glenrothes, it cannot be done remotely.
FVA has asked Integrated Water Services to deliver a training session to help organisations have a better understanding of what is involved in water hygiene for their premises.
All organisations who are responsible for the maintenance of services in any property they own or rent should be aware of the risks of poor water hygiene. The Health and Safety Executive (ACoP L8) advises that those who are appointed to carry out the control measures and strategies are suitably informed, instructed and trained. It states they should be properly trained to a standard which ensures that tasks are carried out in a safe, technically competent manner. Regular refresher training should be given, and records of all initial and refresher training need to be maintained.
Organisations will have a better understanding of the following:
Understanding management responsibilities
Understanding the identification and assessment of the risk
Preventing or controlling the risks
Routine monitoring and inspection
The training session will help delegates to come to a valid decision about:
The potential risks in operating their water system
Their responsibilities and the control measures required to eliminate or minimise those risks
