About this item

In recent years, Legionella and Legionnaires Disease has received a lot of due attention as a substantial threat of infection in all occupied buildings, including health care facilities. The teams responsible for water management and infection control in these facilities need to be prepared to mitigate and respond to this threat. This training program will equip attendees with the requisite knowledge, understanding, and competency to serve as a member of the facilities water safety team to help protect against Legionella outbreaks and react to one appropriately should it occur. The program will focus on the development of a risk assessment analysis, and water management and sampling plan, for protection from Legionella and other waterborne pathogens. The training will also discuss the codes, and the resources, understanding, and skills needed to conduct a facility risk assessment and implement a water safety and management program to reduce the risk of infections due to Legionella.

At the conclusion of the training, the ASSE 12080 certification exam will be administered. Passing the exam will result in becoming certified as Legionella Water Safety and Management Specialist.
