EUSR Training - National Water Hygiene Course

The EUSR (Energy & Utility Skills Register) National Water Hygiene training scheme has been developed for those who work on clean water sites or the clean water network – this includes not only water mains and service pipes, but also areas known as “restricted operations” such as reservoirs, treatment works, wells and pumping stations. All individuals working in these areas are required by UK water companies to hold what is often called the “Blue Card” – the EUSR National Water Hygiene Card. The only way to obtain this is to successfully pass the EUSR National Water Hygiene course.

The EUSR National Water Hygiene scheme has been developed alongside consultation with all water companies in the UK to ensure protection of public health and ensuring good water hygiene practices. The “Blue Card”, which was introduced in 2006, has replaced all other water company specific hygiene schemes.
