The ‘Blue Card’

Created in 2006, the ‘Blue Card’ replaced all water company specific hygiene schemes. It also removed the need for workers to undergo separate testing, health screening and to carry multiple cards. Water companies across the UK now mostly mandate the use of the EUSR National Water Hygiene card.

Who is the EUSR National Water Hygiene Card Suitable For?

The EUSR National Water Hygiene card is suitable for anyone entering a clean water site or engaged in operations on the clean water network, whether in contact with the water or not.

It is increasingly expected that all those handling water for human consumption, including contractors, facilities management organisations, environmental health practitioners, water engineers, plumbers etc also carry a ‘Blue Card’ to demonstrate competence and their understanding of safe water hygiene practice.

Any person working on a restricted operations area at sites such as service reservoirs, water pumping stations, water treatment works, wells, springs and boreholes or working on the network of water mains and service pipes must be in possession of a National Water Hygiene card. The same training package is delivered to both direct employees of water companies, and all contractors that work on the restricted operations sites including self-lay organisations working on new developments.
