In April 2020, ASSE International, the International Association of Plumbing and Mechanical Officials (IAPMO) and the American National Standards Institute (ANSI) released the Professional Qualifications Standard for Legionella Water Safety and Management Personnel. This brand new ASSE 12080 Professional Qualifications Standard outlines the minimum qualifications needed to become a member of a water safety team involved in the development of a risk assessment analysis, and water management and sampling plan, for minimizing Legionella bacteria and other waterborne pathogens in building water systems.
Our Vice President, Environmental Group, Nora Rothschild, our Lead Environmental Group Manager, Spenser Johnson, and our Environmental Group Manager, Morgan Nankivell, took the first three-day ASSE 12080 Professional Qualifications Standard training course from August 17 to 19 and passed the final exam with flying colors.
We are proud to announce that our three fellow employee-owners are now certified Legionella Water Safety and Management Specialists. We are committed to ensuring that our team is trained in the latest knowledge necessary to develop a Legionella Water Management Program (WMP). Contact Barclay for assistance in implementing a site specific WMP or a conversation about ways to reduce the risk of Legionella bacteria proliferation in building water systems.
