General guidance on worker health and safety

Running swimming pools is a complex activity. One area is keeping your workforce safe from harm. Swim England has developed a range of general guidance to help you with workforce safety. It ranges from risk assessments of young people to manual handling advice. Additional Guidance in Health &Safety can be obtained from Richard Barnes (Chairman of Swim England Health & Safety Forum) or Ralph Shortland (London Region Health & Safety Officer).


Any enquiries regarding Health & Safety in relation to facilities should be sent to the Swim England Facilities Team.
