NSF International Training Course: Prevention of Disease and Injury Associated With Building Water Systems

Hazards associated with building water systems -- including microbial hazards Legionella, Pseudomonas and Non-Tubercular Mycobacteria (NTM) -- cause a significant number of serious illnesses and deaths. New standards, directives and regulations are structured on the principles of Hazard Analysis and Critical Control Point (HACCP), a systematic, science-based methodology that has proven effective at preventing hazards from harming people. HACCP provides a standardized-yet-flexible framework for identifying and managing physical and chemical process parameters that can be reliably measured and controlled in real time. HACCP, best known for its successful, widespread use in food safety, has been adapted specifically for use in building water systems. It is increasingly being used by major healthcare providers, prominent educational institutions, and commercial/industrial property owners. Over two days, this intensive course provides the participant a thorough understanding of Prevention of Disease and Injury Associated with Building Water Systems, and the practical knowledge needed to apply HACCP principles to real-world facilities.

This two-day course has been approved for 15 contact hours for those with REHS/RS credentials through NEHA and for those with California Dept. PH REHSs credentials.
