Supply Chain Partnership Helps Drive Tap Water Safety

A new partnership between Energy & Utility Skills, British Water and the Future Water Association is helping to explain, cascade and embed drinking water hygiene approaches throughout the vital supply chain that are working right across restricted water company operations.

Throughout the COVID-19 incident the UK water industry has set out clearly that there can be no reduction in competence or compliance across the duration of the pandemic and hygiene practice will be a very high priority, to protect the health of individuals and the public.
