SCI's Environment Health and Safety Group is pleased to bring you news from their collaborative partner, the Water Management Society.
On 23 April, the Water Management Society, in collaboration with the SCI Environment, Health and Safety Group, will be holding an event to follow up on the Health and Safety Executive's revised publication of ACOP L8 and HSG274 (on the control of Legionnaires' Disease).
This one–day conference, held at the National Motorcycle Museum in Birmingham, will ask:
- What changes have these control documents made in practice?
- Have any improvements been identified?
- What measures do we need to consider for the future?
A number of new initiatives were developed following feedback from the various stakeholder events in 2014 and these will be reported on by members of the HSE, Public Health England and WMSoc working parties.
The programme will include talks on the revision of the primary Legionella control documents over the past year, the implications for dutyholders and other stakeholders, an epidemiological update on Legionnaires' and other waterborne diseases. They will also cover HSG 274 Part 1, 2 and 3. SCI's Environment, Health and Safety Group Committee member, Clive Thompson will end the talks with an update from the Rapid Microbiology Liaison Working Group.
SCI members qualify for the discounted member rate.
