Water Hygiene : Introduction


Water Hygiene Training in Kent and Sussex and the South East of England

The course should last no more than 2½ hours including presentation and test. We will take new photographs for the water hygiene cards and all the trainees need is themselves and a pen. We’ll do the rest. Cost is £100 + vat per candidate and the card is then valid for 3 years, at which point we can provide a refresher course.

The Water hygiene course ensures an understanding of how important it is to maintain good hygiene whilst working with potable water.

The need for a recognised Water Hygiene course

The Energy and Utility Skills Register (EUSR), working with the water industry has developed the National Water Hygiene Scheme as a national standard to replace the existing individually established Hygiene standards and procedures developed and set by water companies.

Now, it is possible for an individual to show that they have been trained to a nationally recognised level. Thus avoiding the need to prove their skill level when moving between water companies. In addition, people working outside the water utility industry, are able to show that they have a nationally recognised skill.
