Allen Wilson

I am sorry to have to tell you that Allen Wilson, founder and proprietor of Studies In Work, died on 3 May after a short illness.

Many of you have known and worked with Allen for a number of years and this news is bound to come as a shock. Allen was the driving force behind Studies In Work and is, to all intents and purposes, irreplaceable. In the circumstances, publication of the Studies in Work newsletter will be suspended for the foreseeable future. I know Allen valued the close relationship he enjoyed with his industry colleagues, customers and subscribers to the newsletter.

I would like to add my personal thanks for your support over the years.

Delapidation Surveys
Many pools and plant rooms have now reached the end of their working life and are due (or commonly overdue) for refurbishment. Studies In Work will carry out an independent, unbiased survey on your behalf and provide a written report of what needs replacing, what can be repaired, and estimate the working life left in an item or process. They will also provide provisional costings for these works. Studies In Work are able to write specifications and if required, supervise the installation in its entirety.

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 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.
