The National Water Safety Management Programme (NWSMP) is a suite of interlinked training awards, specifically designed to assist those organisations with employees who work in, on or near water to meet their civil and statutory safety management obligations (especially where employees have supervisory responsibilities).

 

We were heavily involved in the development of this course in association with The Royal Life Saving Society. 

 

BALANCING PREVENTION AND RESPONSE

 

The programme embraces contemporary approaches to risk management by balancing the need for simple proactive safety management practices (with a strong focus on preventative measures) alongside effective emergency response skills.

FLEXIBILITY

 

The NWSMP allows employers to construct relevant and meaningful training programmes by selecting and linking together those modules most suited to specific operational and individual needs.

 

The programme recognises the need for flexibility, providing individual programmes which meet a wide range of training requirements across a broad spectrum of working environments.
