Additional speakers have been recruited to speak at the Combating Legionella & Water Treatment conference, adding a fresh perspective to the event.
It has benefited from the input of the Heath and Safety Executive (HSE) for a number of years, with principal specialist inspector John Newbold returning again this year to give an L8 and HSG274 update.
The new topic of clarifying landlords’ duties will also be covered by HSE senior policy adviser Lorraine Medcalf this year, including risk assessment in the private sector.
Further new material will be included in presentations such as The Rise of Oxidising Biocides and a practical case study session, which will focus on preventing waterborne bacteria and complying with water safety regulations in a variety of settings.
Care Quality Commission (CQC) specialist estates adviser Robert Nettleton will give an update on nursing home requirements under the revised HSG220 Health and Safety in Care Homes document, giving more essential information to attendees.
Yet more focused and in-depth informaton will be provided by Boden Group Facilities L8 operative James Letten, speaking on Legionella compliance in military creches, hospitals and dental practices, while St George’s University Hospital head of estates Peter Alesbury will deliver further informed updates relating to NHS establishments.
The 12th Annual Combatting Legionella & Water Treatment conference will take place on 29-30 September at Aston Villa Park in Birmingham.
A comprehensive and cutting-edge event, the conference ensures engineering and facilities management teams are able to prevent legionella bacteria from developing and comply with water safety regulations.
