What is the SHEA water passport scheme?
In September 2007, the Water Network Safety Passport Scheme was relaunched as the Utility Safety Health and Environment Awareness (SHEA Water) scheme.
The Scheme delivers awareness, knowledge and understanding of the health, safety and environmental issues relating to Water Network Operations.
Our training programme
Utility SHEA (Water) comprises of thirteen modules. The eight core modules are common to all utility industries and form the basis of health, safety and environmental law and practices.
There are five modules that are specific to the water industry which cover a range of operations within the clean water network, the sewerage network and process operations.
All trainees will complete the core modules, however dependent on job role, they may complete any combination of the Clean Water Network, Sewerage Network and Process modules. It is designed to provide on-site evidence that an individual has demonstrated an appropriate level of knowledge and awareness. It is a passport scheme and does not indicate any level of technical competence or skilled expertise.
Once attendees have successfully completed the course, we ensure they are registered on the EUSR database and issued with the Utility SHEA endorsed card, which is valid for three years.
