Our new course to compliment our existing suite of Water Safety courses. This course is aimed at those members of the WSG who have a responsibility for managing projects from the design stage through to completion - be it a new build through to a refurbishment and alterations to existing water systems. This course would benefit those external organisations who are involved with the design and delivery of developments for their clients (i.e construction and architects).
This course has been born out of several threads, the lack of Project Manager engagement with the WSG on new projects, the increasing number of projects which are being handed over to the operational estates team and clinical teams with fundamental flaws that need to be addressed with little or no involvement with designers or builders. Finally, BS8680 Water Safety Plans has placed huge emphasis on the need for engagement with WSG and service users, accountability, specification, risk assessment and competency of all those in projects.
The course will provide an introduction on ‘water safety’ and waterborne pathogens outlining favorable conditions and how these can be linked with water systems. What regulations and guidance documents exist relating to waterborne pathogens as well as standards and best practice guidance. BS8680 details key design stages that needs to be considered, these will be outlined including examples of projects and their issues to demonstrate that there are lessons to be learnt!
It needs to be made very clear that this course is not about how to design water systems, disinfection processes, or detailed commissioning – this course is about getting it right at the design stage through engagement, risk assessment and clearly defined stages of a project.
