CPD: Engineering vs Pseudomonas

Pseudomonas Aeruginosa in building services is still an evolving concern and a subject that Horne have looked at very closely. The full title of this presentation is ‘Engineering versus Pseudomonas, Legionella and the retrograde contamination of domestic water services by micro-organisms’ and the following question will be posed - “what can engineering bring to the fight against P. Aeruginosa in domestic water services?” 

The presentation and Q/A session will last around 1.5 - 2 hours.

All participants receive a certificate of attendance.

Thanks for providing the CPD.  I thought the format of the presentation was first class!  It certainly caught they guys’ attention and interest, and was a reminder to the older heads just how important a part we play in helping to minimise risks associated not just with Pseudomonas, but also similar subject matter, which is part and parcel of what we do as PH engineers, so thanks again.

The CPD was one of the best we have had in the last year or so!  Very informative and interesting.
