About Steam Water Treatment Training

This training course is useful for all workers responsible for the operation and management of boiler water treatments, as well as steam system controls.

Its purpose is to help workers identify the need for water treatment in steam systems and the best practice for undertaking this type of treatment.

Why Is Steam Water Treatment Training Important?

There has been a significant increase in unmanned boilers, mainly due to improvements in the reliability of electronic control systems. According to a study, improper maintenance causes one in five boiler breakdowns each year, in the UK.

The HSE provides the basic guidance on the risks and regulatory requirements for the operation of steam boilers.

It sets out the general principles of boiler safety for people such as owners, managers and supervisors, who do not have access to industry knowledge.
