EUSR National Water Hygiene Card
What is the EUSR Water Hygiene Card?
Introduced in January 2006 the National Water Hygiene Card replaced the various existing hygiene and health screening schemes for both direct employees and sub contractors of the individual water companies across the UK.
Anyone working on pumping stations, water treatment works, boreholes and the water networks (collectively known as Restricted Operations) must be registered with the Energy & Utility Skills Register and be a holder of the National Water Hygiene Card, or Blue Card as it is commonly known.
After completing the course, the card holder is fully aware of the various ways that a supply of potable water could be contaminated, and of their own responsibility in actively preventing any water contamination.
Health Screening – EUSR National Water Hygiene Card
Screening is carried out to ensure that every operative holding the National Water Hygiene card does not carry any waterborne diseases.
Each card holder understands the need to, and their role in, protecting public health, and that they must inform their line manager should they come into contact with any disease that may cause harm.
National Water Hygiene Card - Lifespan
From date of training, an EUSR National Water Hygiene Card lasts for three years.
