Awareness and Management of Water Safety Plans in Building Water Systems
1 day course
The course has been designed for all staff involved with patient safety and specifically estates and facilities and infection prevention and control teams, focusing on specific additional measures to control/minimise the risk of Legionella bacteria and P. aeruginosa.
The course objectives are to enable delegates to acquire knowledge of Water Safety Plans (WSP) and apply that knowledge in managing the risk of water contamination in building water systems.
Delegates will acquire the knowledge and skills to:
Be aware of the history and development of WSPs. Focusing on preparation, hazard identification, risk assessment and system design issues.
Value the risks posed by waterborne bacteria, the potential harm to people and how a water safety group can work together to minimise the risks.
Understand the operational monitoring and management of a WSP looking at control measures, management procedures and corrective responses.
Appreciate the need for clinical and engineering risk assessment and the practical measures which can be implemented to control identified risks, such as design and selection of approved water outlets and fittings.
Know the importance of feedback and improvement, supporting programmes and periodic review.
Implement and manage a WSP in a healthcare setting.
Make a WSP work by identification of hazards, risk assessment (clinical hygiene and engineering).
