Health and Safety Guidance Update

After several years of discussions the Health & Safety Executive have published an updated version of HSG179 Managing Health & Safety in Swimming Pools.

This document is the primary guidance document for all Pool Operators on how they should manage their swimming pools safely, how to conduct risk assessments and produce Pool Safe Operating Procedures and Emergency Action Plans.

The decisions the Pool Operator makes will affect your club; the previous document was not free but this document is and it is advised that all swimming clubs should download this document so that they understand where they ‘fit’ into the health and safety systems of their pool operator.
