L8 refers to training which is regulatory. This we believe is as fundamental to legionella control as risk assessments are, logbooks and a management structure. Inadequate management, poor communication and lack of training have all been contributory factors in outbreaks of Legionnaires' Disease.

Ask yourself this -

  1. How can I be responsible if I don't know what I am responsible for?
  2. How can I do the correct monitoring and maintenance if I do not have the knowledge to perform in a manner to control legionella and report defects?
  3. How efficient will I be in flushing and able to identify when, where and why to flush?

The answer is simple, TRAINING.

Another few points that is very important -

  1. Is the training adequate for the task required?
  2. Is it accredited, supported with evidence of retained knowledge?

This is why we ensure that all courses have a suitable assessment paper on completion of the course to comply with L8.

Competence is also defined as having experience, knowledge, ability and other qualities needed to undertake legionella control but the most important part of that is TRAINING.

We recognise that you may have the resources to carry out many of the functions required to control Legionella and were this we would like the opportunity of ensuring you get it right. Here at Eplus Global we use WHT Ltd for our training which is unbiased and delivered by Simon French who has had in excess of 28 years of experience in all fields of Legionella control and is well known in the legionella world. Ex-committee member of the LCA for four years, member of the Water Management Society for over 15 years and currently in three committees of B&ES as well as training for them.
