Course Author – Adam Harries

Adam is an experienced pool plant operator, having been in leisure management for many years before becoming a chartered health and safety consultant and founding Stockwell Safety.



The Coronavirus has had a huge impact on the swimming pool industry, including some changes to operational procedures and parameters.

The industry’s lead body, the Pool Water Treatment Advisory Group (PWTAG) are regularly producing detailed guidance in the form of technical notes, to help swimming pool and spa pool operators manage the risks.

The first of these technical notes addressing the coronavirus was Guidance on temporary closure during coronavirus emergency (Technical Note 43), but there have been several more published since.

Rather than duplicate the information contained in these technical notes, we would advise pool operators to access and download the relevant technical notes (they’re free of charge) and incorporate the guidance into their internal procedures as appropriate.
