EUSR National Water Hygiene Scheme
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 undergo separate testing, health screening and to carry several separate cards for each water authority.
The EUSR water Hygiene course allows delegates access to Restricted Areas on Clean Water. Successful completion, of course, involves passing a theory test, filling in a medical screening questionnaire, and registration form.
The total course fee includes the charge of £34.20 to apply for each EUSR card.
On successful completion of the course, a cover note will be issued to each delegate for 45 days until the card is issued.
Delegates must bring a passport photograph when attending the course.
