Our Authorising Engineers, who are trained to City & Guilds standard, will act completely independently as professional advisor and auditor. They will assist your organisation in the design, implementation, and continual monitoring of a 'Water Safety Plan'.

We always work closely with our clients and play an essential role in ensuring Legionella and water hygiene safety in hospital environments. In addition, we offer a range of City & Guilds Training courses from a two-day management course to half-day refresher courses.⠀
