Safe Working In Water

Where individuals are working in, on, or near water there is a requirement to ensure their safety.

The Rescue 3 Europe Safe Working In Water (SWIW) course is designed for people tasked with working in water who will need a self- and co-worker rescue capability using conditional rescue techniques, eg throwbags, wading techniques and reach poles. The target audience is EA, SEPA, NRW personnel, construction industry workers, road and bridge maintenance workers.

This course offers a higher level rescue capability than the Safe Working Near Water (SWNW) course and is at the DEFRA Module 2 Level, Very popular with industrial clients as it so widely known and accepted by key stakeholders. Defra Mod 2 is often stated as the minimum requirement for operatives working around the water in tender documents.
