SHEA (Water) EUSR Safety, Health & Environmental Awareness

About SHEA EUSR (Water) Safety, Health & Environmental Awareness

The SHEA (Safety, Health and Environmental Awareness) Water Passport Scheme Training course provides a uniform approach to health, safety and environmental awareness across the utilities sector. The passport scheme has been developed in collaboration with industry in order to meet Health & Safety Executive (HSE) guidelines.

This water industry training programme now includes additional modules on highway working and excavations, sewerage network and process operations.

The 1 day course can accommodate up to 12 delegates per day.

This course is currently available as a virtual course, contact the team to find out more.

SHEA Modules

The SHEA Water scheme takes a modular approach. There are eight modules with six modules designated as ‘core’ modules, which are pertinent for all utility sectors. Two modules provide the water industry specific content.

  • Module 1: Understanding our workplace responsibilities
  • Module 2: Understanding the effects of our work on the environment
  • Module 3: Identifying and controlling risks
  • Module 4: Common hazards in the workplace
  • Module 5: Sewerage network and process operations (Scheme specific module)
  • Module 6: Highway working and excavations (Scheme specific module)
  • Module 7: Occupational health hazards
  • Module 8: Responding to emergencies

Candidates must complete all eight modules and pass the SHEA Water assessment and gain EUSR SHEA Water registration.

Who should attend?

All individuals involved in the operational activities of the water industry who require access to sites, both permanent and temporary, including all levels of operatives, supervisors and management. 



The SHEA Water scheme is partnered with CSCS to allow water industry workers access to construction sites for purposes of utilities work without the need for a separate CSCS card.

For further details please consult the CSCS Partner page. 

SHEA Water is affiliated with CSCS and therefore the EUSR card card carries the CSCS logo
