About Legionella Awareness Training

The Legionella awareness training course educates employers, employees and relevant duty holders about the hazard of Legionella bacteria, risk management and infection control.

The legionnaire’s disease is a type of pneumonia caused by legionella bacteria that is present in water droplets in the air. Simply breathing in these water droplets can cause sickness as they can enter into the lungs. Water accidentally entering the lungs while drinking is also possible.

Why Is Legionella Awareness Training Important?

Legionella related diseases are a risk that must be taken seriously by all organisations. A legionella outbreak can affect many people, causing high temperature or fever, mental confusion, abdominal pain or diarrhoea.

According to the World Health Organisation (WHO), the disease can be fatal with mortality rates as high as 40 to 80%. These mortality rates are for those with weak immune systems, which can drop to 5-10% if proper risk prevention measures are undertaken.
