National Water Hygiene

Did you know that our planet consists of 70% water and only 0.5% is fit for human consumption. That is why it is so important we look after this precious comodity. Water is a food product, exactly the same as milk.

We trust the people who supply our milk and food and therefore we need to trust the companies who supply and look after water quality. Water Hygiene Training

The National Water Hygiene scheme has been developed at the request of Water UK, the body representing the water supply companies across England, Wales, Scotland and Northern Ireland

The blue National Water Hygiene card was introduced in January 2006 to replace all water company specific hygiene schemes and removes the need for workers to undergoseparate testing, health screening and to carry several separate cards for each water authority.

Any person working on a restricted operations sites such as service reservoirs, pumping stations, treatment works, wells, spring and boreholesandworking on the network of water mains and service pipes must be in possession of a National Water Hygiene card. 

The same training package is delivered to both direct employees of water companies, and all contractors that work on the restricted operations sitesincluding self-lay organisations working on new developments.
