National Water Safety Management Programme

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).


  • Enable the facilitation, encouragement and enjoyment of safer open water activity by equipping those who work in, on or near water with the necessary knowledge and skills to make informed decisions about safety.
  • Develop personal safety skills for lone workers operating in a water-based environment.
  • Develop aquatic emergency response skills.

Who is it for?

Teachers, Technicians, Outdoor Activity Instructors, Countryside Rangers, Community Safety Wardens, Dock workers, Construction workers, the Emergency Services – everyone and anyone who works in, on or near water.

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.


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.
