A half day enabling candidates to gain a firm grounding in the Health & Safety issues of the water industry, from contamination to accident prevention.
Who will benefit?:
Anyone whose duties include the Safe distribution of treated water to the domestic and commercial client.
Aims of Training:
To inform individuals working in restricted areas of their obligation not to contaminate the water System and how to prevent an accident from occurring. The aim is to give awareness training rather than any job specific training.
The scheme aims to set a national standard for all elements of health screening and hygiene.
This comprises of three elements:
- Successful completion of the health screening questionnaire

The Training will cover a variety of roles and functions that are carried out within the water industry. These would include personnel working on the following:
- Service reservoirs

This will ensure that all companies train and test their employees to the same standard and allows anyone registered to the scheme to move from one company to another without having to re-take a ‘hygiene test’.
