17 July 2012 - LEEDS

19 July 2012 - LONDON  

The Mary Ward Centre, 10 Great Turnstile Street, London WC1V 7JU

“Nothing new ever happens in the water field. I’ve heard it all before”. Not so, actually. In the past 2 years we’ve had a new British Standard on legionellosis risk assessment, new guidance on Pseudomonas following the death of neonates in Belfast, new SHTM04 guidance on water, a new BS8558:2011 guidance which replaces BS.6700, and all amidst talk of eliminating flexible hoses, using fewer TMVs, etc.  All of this in a climate of economic pressure to reduce costs. Water hygiene is one of many risks that need to be resourced and managed.

These IHEEM water seminars take the theme of the “The Invisible Threat” which come in engineering, microbiological and regulatory form and they will be taking place on 17 July in Leeds and 19 July in London. These threats are changing but the seminars will help those responsible for managing water systems to appreciate the updating to their approach that will be needed to accommodate the considerable developments taking place at this time.

John Newbold – HM Specialist Inspector for the HSE – has confirmed he will be speaking at this event.

David Harper – well-known ex-hospital engineer and expert in the field of water borne contamination prevention and emergency response - will be chairing the day.  Other confirmed speakers are:

Dr Nick Hill – Technical Director, the Water Hygiene Centre
Clare Reynolds – Laboratory Manager (Water Testing), Brighton & Sussex University Hospitals NHS Trust
Steve Mount – Legionella Consultant, Steve Mount Associates Ltd
Alan Hambidge – Director, Empathy Environmental Consultants Ltd
Rob Griffiths – Legionella Consultant (Water Regulations), Griffiths Associates

The water seminars are being supported by an education grant provided by Pall Medical.
