Working Near Water - Supporting Employers - Protecting Employees
 
SchoolTrip

The aims of the National Water Safety Management Programme (NWSMP) are to:

  • Equip anyone working in, on or near water with essential knowledge and skills to make informed decisions about managing safety
  • Enable group leaders to deliver safer activity at open water sites
  • Develop personal safety skills for lone workers operating around water
  • Facilitate compliance with Statutory and Civil obligations, especially the Health and Safety at Work Act 1974 with related regulations and covering Safe Systems of Work
  • Develop effective Emergency Response Skills for those working in a water based environment

Businesses often make comprehensive provision for training employees in common aspects of health and safety such as first aid, fire safety, manual handling and COSHH. The same emphasis is not always given to water safety. Open water is typically cold, deep, fast moving and difficult to enter and exit, with hidden underwater dangers. In many businesses, employees need to understand and manage the specific risks associated with these unfamiliar hazards.

The NWSMP is a suite of entry level, modular and interlinked training awards which offer a flexible approach to water safety training. It has been specifically created to help employers protect employees from risk of harm as the result of working near or around water. It is suitable for a wide range of circumstances, including:

It is especially suitable for people who work with children such as teachers, scout and guide leaders, youth group leaders and outdoor activities professionals. Don't let a lack of confidence in risk assessing activities close to, in or on water prevent you running the trips you know will inspire those you lead or teach.

The programme includes the following qualifications:

Those wishing to attend one or more Level 2 or 3 modules must first have completed one of the two Level 1 water safety awareness modules.
