Course Overview

It is critically important that managers are aware of the health risks associated with water. It is often assumed that the water taken from the tap is safe; in fact the Water Management Regulations 1999 require that water companies distribute water of a safe standard to your premises. However the incoming mains water is not sterile, there will always be a low level of background bacteria.  Once on the premises it is the responsibility of the site management to ensure the safety of the water.
