Completing the Melbourne Polytechnic Cooling Towers for Auditors short course will allow participants to apply to the Department of Health Services for certification as an approved cooling towers auditor.
The Public Health and Wellbeing Act 2008 and the Public Health and Wellbeing Regulations 2009 require owners of land on which cooling tower systems are located to develop a Risk Management Plan (RMP).
These plans must address the risks prescribed in the regulations:
The Public Health and Wellbeing Act 2008 requires that the owner of the land take all reasonable steps to ensure that an audit is performed of the RMP
Section 94 allows the Secretary to certify a person to conduct a risk management plan audit and approve that person for the purposes of the Act.
