The role of an Authorising Engineer is a requirement of Health Technical Memoranda (HTM) 00. Our Authorising Engineers, who are trained to City and 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 and Guilds Training courses from a two-day management course to half-day refresher courses.⠀
