With the current situation surrounding the Coronavirus pandemic, there are a number of considerations that should be addressed by those with Health and Safety responsibility for the management of swimming pools.
As you are likely aware, there are specific challenges to keeping a swimming pool free from infection, even when there are no public outbreaks of disease. The situation now should be given specific attention when looking at the safety of people using your facility.
Areas that should be paid closer attention to are your procedures, staff competency and training standards, circulation and filtration systems, the reliability of your pool disinfection system, that routine maintenance is up to date and that the pool has risk assessments in place to address the hazard presented by the coronavirus.
Do you know if your pool meets the current standards set out in legislation and approved codes of practice? If not the pool may be a high-risk area for the spread of harmful diseases, such as the coronavirus.
