Join us for an upcoming 60 minute Water Webinar

Water safety in buildings applies to the delivery of safe drinking water, and In-Premise Water Safety Plans are the most effective means of consistently ensuring the safety of drinking water at the point-of-use. This 60 minute, free to join webinar will focus on the water system network relevant to the Hospital Water Safety Team, including

  • Water System Design – including new build vs renovation projects
  • Installation – quality of materials,  assessing contractors and avoiding bad practice
  •  Materials – factors which are critical to selecting materials for drinking water installations
  • Commissioning – a 10 point checklist to sign-off when a building, ward or piece of equipment is installed
  • Meaningful Drawings - describing the system with the level of detail needed to be practicable for the water safety team
  • Ranking Resources - prioritise the risks, and therefore prioritise the budget
  • Preparing a financial review with Senior Management  - how best to present Water Safety Plans for adequate funding
