PWTAG trying to ‘force’ ISPE into becoming accredited by them

Back in December 2017, whilst reading through PWTAG’s new publication, I noticed two items that I felt were definitely outside PWTAG’s remit. On page 3 they stated, ‘Swimming Pool Water is considered to be the authoritative guidance for swimming pools in a court of law.’  I personally am unsure if this is the case, or is it just PWTAG’s opinion.

On page 33 they stated, ‘Training should be suitable and sufficient and should be accredited by the Pool Water Treatment Advisory Group (PWTAG)’.

micro-biological testing

Why?

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

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

Why we must microbiologically test our water

Asbestos
Awareness
Training

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.
