Cooling Tower Inspections

Training outcome

Opportunity to undertake an inspection of a cooling tower accompanied by an EHO. 

This is an excellent opportunity to inspect a cooling tower and its associated plant within a large multi-storey office building.

The inspection will provide an understanding of HSE guidance L8 on “The control of legionella bacteria in water systems.”

Students will have the opportunity to see plant first hand and also review water management safety documentation.

The inspection element will assist those students looking to provide evidence to meet HS4 in their PPP whilst also allowing them to demonstrate core skills.
