Have you heard of the new guidance on spa-pools?
“Spa-pools” covers a variety of equipment designed to
contain warm, agitated water including hot-tubs, spa-baths and whirlpool baths.
If you have any of these, you must read and adhere to the
new HSE guidance: “The Control of legionella and other infectious agents
in spa-pool systems - HSG282.”
These pools are a known source of infection. An outbreak
of Legionnaires’ disease can cause fatalities, whilst other infectious agents
which breed in poorly managed pools can also have very unpleasant effects, e.g.
folliculitis, e-coli and viral skin infections.
Spa-pools are a high risk because the water is kept at warm
temperatures (usually 30 to 40 degrees celsius), ideal for the growth of
bacteria, and the high bather load ensures there’s plenty of organic matter.
In addition, the agitation of the water creates tiny
droplets which are inhaled. For these reasons the management of water quality
The guidance applies to all spa-pools including
hot-tubs and spa-baths. It outlines how inadequate design or management can
cause various nasty diseases. Use this guide to ensure you have the right
procedures including a written scheme of control.
