Launched in 2015, Industrial Water Training Services (IWTS) Ltd is a specialist health and safety training company specialising in confined space entry, working at heights, water jetting and rescue.
Coordinating from their Oldham centre in Lancashire, the IWTS team delivers effective training nationally across a broad range of industrial health and safety training courses.

With the ability to serve up to 168 delegates per week from a range of highly specialist training courses specifically tailored to meet client needs – where they want, when they want. Delivering bespoke courses on clients’ sites if required, including weekends and evenings if necessary.
Delegates attending courses will be trained to the highest possible standards in health and safety, where they will be made more aware of the hazards and risks associated with their working environments. Specifically they will learn how these should be controlled to comply with legislation, through practical guidance tutorials that are delivered to national occupational standards.
IWTS prides itself with having qualified tutors that are highly competent and experienced in all subject matters that they teach and assess in. This being supported and backed by relevant awarding body and official licensing; such as City & Guilds, Construction Skills (C-Skills), the Water Jetting Association and more.
This requires IWTS to be constantly aware of existing safety legislation and standards, or any impending changes to them. With the capability to position itself as a highly professional and fully licensed/accredited training provider, this confirms and ensures safety compliance at all times.
IWTS offers the latest ‘state of the art’ facilities, with training rooms fully equipped with the latest presentational aids, with all rooms designed to ensure that delegates are comfortable whilst attending courses studying theory. In addition, IWTS has invested in a purpose built and practical confined space entry training rig that uniquely caters for all levels of confined space entry working, tunnelling, and working at heights, with also rope access and rescue. The rig provides hands on training to simulate a realistic working environment; with all equipment required for training being of the highest standard available. To ensure that our confined space entry and working at heights kit is safely maintained in peak condition, IWTS works in partnership with Professional Safety Services (UK) Ltd to regularly service all safety equipment.
Looking towards the future, IWTS plans to develop regional training centres to further meet customers’ needs nationally. With all new centres envisaged providing courses delivered in the same ‘state of the art’ modern training facilities as Oldham.
The current management team comprises of Peter Jackson, Training Director, Val Perrin, Administration Director and Tim Graham, Centre Manager. The IWTS team is based in new purpose built facilities at Hollinwood Business Centre on Albert Street, Oldham, OL8 3QL.
