Transcript of "Document Review and Production"

  1. 1. Physical Activity and Leisure Management Ltd POOL PLANT OPERATIONS INFORMATION UPDATE SEMINAR (on-line option) 1Carlton Associates Ltd (c) 2013
  2. 2. Physical Activity and Leisure Management Ltd MODULE 2: DOCUMENT REVIEW AND PRODUCTION 2Carlton Associates Ltd (c) 2013
  3. 3. 3Carlton Associates Ltd (c) 2013 This module explains how a pool can comply with the BS-EN BS EN 15288-2 Swimming Pools; Safety Requirements for Operation standard, and the PWTAG Code of Practice for the Management of Swimming Pools. The CoP sets out how the technical operation of the pool should function, including the current Best Practices in safety document production, and your Water Safety Plan. In this Module we will be focusing on:
  4. 4. Carlton Associates Ltd (c) 2013 4 • How to Protect Swimmers from US • Dealing with Diarrhoea • What if it is a High Rate Filter? • Safety Requirements for the Operation of Swimming Pools • The Water Safety Plan
  5. 5. Carlton Associates Ltd (c) 2013 5 • Management of Health and Safety at Work • Safe Systems of Work • Normal Operating Systems • Emergency Action Plan • Recording and Reporting
  6. 6. PROTECTING SWIMMERS FROM US !  Do you have written procedures for the operation of the plant room?  Do you have the ‘idiot guide for filtration and backwashing’ on the back of the plant room door?  Why bother with water tests?  Why bother with testing the ‘calcium hardness level’? 6Carlton Associates Ltd (c) 2013
  7. 7. Carlton Associates Ltd (c) 2013 7 Evacuate all swimmers from the pool immediately. Increase the chlorination of the pool water by raising the normal free chlorine level to 2.0mg/l if either of the Hypochlorites are being used as the disinfectant Ensure a coagulant is introduced The pool should be closed and treated for 6 turnover periods. Vacuum and/or sweep the pool floor to remove any solid material. Backwash the filter, and top up the pool water level. Circulate the pool for a further eight hours, to remove any with- held oocysts, through any imperfections in the backwash process. Procedure for dealing with diarrhoea (extract: full procedure are in the notes)
  8. 8. Carlton Associates Ltd (c) 2013 8 Evacuate all swimmers from the pool immediately. Increase the chlorination of the pool water by raising the normal free chlorine level to 20.0mg/l, and kept there for at least 13 hours, or 6 turnover periods, whichever is the greater. Ensure a coagulant is introduced Vacuum and/or sweep the pool floor to remove any solid material. Backwash the filter, and top up the pool water level. Allow the Free Chlorine level to fall to normal, by circulating the pool for a further eight hours, to remove any with-held oocysts, through any imperfections in the backwash process. However, if it is a hi-rate filter …….

  10. 10. BS-EN 15288-2 Swimming Pools; Safety Requirements for the Operation of Swimming Pools  A Code of Practice is being introduced by the POOL WATER TREATMENT ADVISORY GROUP that will help to meet the requirements of this European Standard.  Pool will be able to be assessed, to decide whether they meet these requirements.  There will be a number of ‘headings’ but there will also be several appendices. The full standard can be viewed/purchased on-line:- search: bs-en 15288-2 10Carlton Associates Ltd (c) 2013
  11. 11. BS-EN 15288-2 Swimming Pools; Safety Requirements for operations: The ‘HEADINGS’  Management procedures  Water treatment  Pool requirements  Filtration  Pool operating procedures  Emergency procedures for dealing with faecal fouling and Cryptosporidium  Pool hygiene and cleaning  Monitoring and control of water quality standards  Microbiological testing  Plant room  Heating and air circulation  Application and use of chemicals 11Carlton Associates Ltd (c) 2013
  12. 12. BS-EN 15288-2 Swimming Pools; Safety Requirements for operations: The ‘APPENDICES’  Dye Test , and Hair Entrapment Test There will also be a recommendation to produce a WATER SAFETY PLAN.  appointing a water management team;  a risk assessment to define the quality of water supplied into the premises / building  an assessment of all potential sources of hazards and potential routes whereby they may be transmitted.  a system assessment to determine the ability of the water treatment system to remove hazards  process control using HACCP principles,  communication and education about water quality and how safe water quality can be achieved. 12Carlton Associates Ltd (c) 2013
  13. 13. The ‘WATER SAFETY PLAN’ For the majority of Centres, this will involve:-  Ensuring that the water entering the building was of potable quality.  All systems and equipment which use water should be itemised (an asset register) and potential routes of exposure to waterborne hazards determined for each.  Water quality targets should then be determined for each of the above  A risk assessment should be carried out to determine the points where identified hazards may enter or increase within each system and findings documented.  A scheme of control should then be determined for each system with appropriate monitoring points, intervals and parameters identified.  The control scheme should then be validated to determine that it is effective.  A training scheme programme should be developed for all persons who have any impact on water quality.  Lines of communication should be clearly identified and documented. 13Carlton Associates Ltd (c) 2013
  14. 14. Carlton Associates Ltd (c) 2013 14 THE MANAGEMENT OF HEALTH AND SAFETY AT WORK REGULATIONS 1999  The regulations require pool managers to carry out risk assessments, and from them to develop written systems of work:  Normal Operating Procedures  Emergency action plan (EAP) These are itemised in Appendix 4 of HSG 179 But is that the ONLY NOP/EAP that we need? What about the Plant Room, Chemicals, etc., etc
  15. 15. Safe Systems of Work  The Risk Assessment is to be signed by a senior member of the Management Team, and must be reviewed, signed and dated on an annual basis.  The Normal Operating Procedure and Emergency Action Plans must be compiled from the findings of a Risk Assessment, which explains why there are variations between each pool’s documents.  Once set and agreed, the NOP and EAP must be made available to those who may be required to operate or manage the swimming pool and its use, and their understanding of it use be tested. 15Carlton Associates Ltd (c) 2013
  16. 16. 16 Normal Operating Procedure  Details of the Pool: dimensions and capacity  Operational Scope types of use and duration  Working in the Plant Room, Chemical Stores, etc noise and lone working assessment  Water Treatment Procedures chemical handling  Filtration and Backwashing Procedures timing  Water Testing Regime frequency; parameters, balanced water calculation:  Water Treatment Equipment Maintenance planned maintenance programme  COSHH Chemical Stores Chemical safety Internal COSHH Sheets Delivery and offloading Carlton Associates Ltd (c) 2013
