micro-biological testing


To ensure compliance with COSHH regulations, Lead Body Guidance and British Standards, all pools and spa’s accessible by your employees and the plublic should be micro-biologically tested on a regular basis.

The guidance states that conventional pools should be tested monthly, hydrotheraphy pools weekly, and spas an dhot tubs monthly plus a test for Legionalla every third month.

Why we must microbiologically test our water

Blast from the past


Did you know?

Any non-domestic premises, building, factory, sports clubs, schools, etc. built or refurbished before the year 2000 may contain asbestos which is one of the most lethal dangers in the workplace.

Every year there are still 4,000 deaths from asbestos related diseases.

This represents 80 people a week, a higher figure than those dying on our roads. It is a common misconception that asbestos was something that used to be a threat in industry.

What have we been up to?


Local clubs and people with assistance in sponsoring have helped.


Studies in Work has been in the National press on several occations.
