HSE to introduce new pool safety guidelines
HSE to introduce new pool safety guidelines
The Health and Safety Executive (HSE) is to carry out the biggest review for almost a decade into managing the safety aspects in swimming pools.

HSG179, ‘Managing Health and Safety in Swimming Pools’ was last reviewed in 2003 and the HSE feels there have been a large number of issues in an around pools which now need to be reflected in its safety guidelines.

One of which is the implications of the British Standards BS EN15288 which applies to the safety aspects of designing and what it calls the ‘implications of technology.

Since the last review, there have been a lot of changes, from the introduction of to the updates in technology.

The review will focus on restructuring to improve readability, a content refresh to improve clarity and to reflect changes affecting the industry and changes in the legal framework.

The HSE has asked a number of organisations in the fitness and pool industry to respond to such questions as:
1. What is good about the current guidance?
2. How could the structure be improved?
3. What is missing?
4. What can be expanded upon?
5. What can be removed?
