Managing health and safety in swimming pools
(3rd ed., 2003)
Part of the Health and Safety Guidance series
This booklet provides guidance for those who have any involvement with the operation and management of health and safety in swimming pools: primarily pool owners (including local authority clients), pool operators (including management contractors), architects, engineers, designers, manufacturers and constructors.
Aspects of this guidance will also apply to pool hirers.
Its aim is to provide guidance on the risks associated with swimming pool operation and the precautions which may be taken to help achieve a safer environment for people who use swimming pools and employees who work at them.
The revision brings the guidance up to date with changes in health and safety law and new developments in relation to equipment, facilities and supervision arrangements.
