NSF International recently launched a new Building Water Systems Hazard Analysis and Critical Control Point training program for water systems professionals. The training will help safeguard against microbial, chemical and physical hazards associated with premise plumbing, cooling towers and other water systems in buildings.

Although municipal water is treated and distributed in accordance with U.S. Environmental Protection Agency regulations and is safe for its intended use, microorganisms can enter plumbing systems, attach to the inside surfaces of pipes and equipment to form a biofilm and grow in much greater numbers. Potentially pathogenic microorganisms can then be released into the environment as infectious particles that can pose a threat to human health.

The NSF HACCP for Building Water Systems training courses will be taught by William F. McCoy, Ph.D., and Aaron A. Rosenblatt, both water systems experts with more than 69 years of combined industry experience.

Training courses will be held in multiple cities across the United States. Facility managers, water treatment, distribution and plumbing engineers, and occupational safety professionals can register at  http://tinyurl.com/nta57zg.
