RLSS Emergency Response - Swimming Pool

New From December 2010
 
Paragraph 193 of the HSE publication "Managing Health and Safety in Swimming Pool" states - Whenever the swimming pool is in use, a member of staff will need to be designated as "on call" to respond immediately to the alarm and deal with any emergency.  It is essential that such staff are trained in pool rescue, CPR techniques and first aid.
 
The RLSS Emergency Response Awrd (Pool) is designed to meet these requirements.
 
The Emergency Response programme is designed to train ancillary staff to back up and support the lifeguard team (if available) and staff to respond to an emergency.
 
In complying with the HSE publication "Managing Health and Sasfety in Swimming Pools", pool operators are strongly reccommended to refer to figure 3 on page 66, to determine if continuous or occassional poolside supervision is required.
 

"Constant poolside supervision by lifeguards provides the best assurance of the pool user's safety"

"MANAGING HEALTH AND SAFETY IN SWIMMING POOLS, HSG 179"
