Swiftwater Rescue Training, Water Safety Cover and Training for Industry.

Training for Industry

We have worked with organisations such as BT, Cubby Construction, Maysons Construction training staff working on water margin projects and helping with risk assessment, control measures and method statements.

Safety training is often a core requirement to meet Environment Agency tender requirements.

All courses are certificated by Rescue 3.

Safe Working Near Water (3 hours)

A classroom-based course, that looks at the hazards and risk associated with inland (lakes, canals, rivers) and coastal water. It looks at basic control measures and safe working practices that can be introduced, including types of PPE and their use. The SWNW course is designed for industry, civil engineering, and other workers near water

Life Jacket Competant User (1 day)

For personnel who will operate in the warm zone at a water rescue incident and personnel who will operate near water as part of their key job function, eg construction workers, EA water hydrometry staff etc. As such, it is not intended that they will enter the water, and a manual or auto inflation lifejacket is worn as PPE for accidental water entry only.

Co Worker Rescue From Water – Moving Water (3 days)

This course providers the knowledge and techniques to allow employees to provide bank-based rescue cover for their colleagues working next to moving water (inland rivers, confined tidal flows) where use of a powered safety boat is not required.
