Water Tank Regulations England, Wales, Scotland, Northern Ireland

Water Tank Safety

Dewey Waters have been manufacturing water storage tanks for potable and non-potable applications for the last 60 years. We pride ourselves on rigorous training and inspection processes which are continuously evolving in accordance with water safety regulations. Dewey Waters have these processes in place for each tank that leaves production and additional health and safety regulations for onsite tank assembly to ensure our standards of quality water storage tanks are upheld.

Who has to comply with the Regulations?

Property owners and residents including any person fitting plumbing systems, must by law ensure that the work carried out adheres to the UK water regulations.
Installations of water tanks must be planned with prior notice given from the builders, consultants, architects, developers or plumbers who must follow the regulations on behalf of the owners or tenants.
Enforcement

The UK requests suppliers to adhere to government regulations when fitting and installing water storage tanks. Codes of practice on enforcement can be provided by your water tank supplier. All water tank suppliers must undertake inspections for new and pre-existing installations to ensure that the water standards are being met. If there is an issue with water quality with the potential to pose a risk to health the water supply must be disconnected immediately.

Dewey Waters Onsite Water Tank Safety Guidelines

Any work activity undertaken by an employer should be done safely without risk of injury or ill health to any person who may come into contact with the activity.

An assessment of the work activity must be carried out by a competent person who will seek to eliminate any dangers or hazards and produce safe system of work. The safe system of work should be written down. This usually takes the form of a Risk Assessment and Method Statement, commonly referred to as the ‘RAMS’

The RAMS must address any residual hazards and identify how to work safely. Typical hazards associated with the installation of our sectional water storage tanks which cannot be eliminated include:

• Manual handling
• Slips and trips
• Working at height
• Hand arm vibration
• Noise

In order for our installers to be able to work safely we provide information, instruction relevant training and supervision. Installation supervisors undertake additional training to attain a certificate of competence in the form of a Site Supervisors Safety Training Scheme (SSSTS) certificate.

Other relevant certified training for installers includes:

• Construction Skills Certification Scheme (CSCS) Card
• Prefabricated Access Suppliers and Manufacturers Association (PASMA) card
• Confined space awareness with breathing apparatus
• Asbestos awareness
• First aid

Any work undertaken on a construction project will be subject to meeting the requirements of the Construction Design and Management (CDM) regulations and will be different for each construction site and client specific conditions.

For England and Wales, the Water Supply (Water Fittings) Regulations and their Schedules are Statutory Instruments (1999 No. 1148 and No. 1506) available from HMSO and via the Internet link below.
