Swimming & Spa Pools can be an added attraction at any park, but without ensuring they are operated correctly, they can cause many Health & safety Issues, and also be a drain on income. 

It is vital that anyone who operates a Pool, is fully up to date on the latest Industry Guidelines and Standards. With Health & Safety becoming more prominent in the industry, and a number of pools and parks being fined when accidents occur and they are found not to have the correct operating procedures in place, pool operators are urged to ensure they have a good level of understanding and training in dealing with chemicals, and plant rooms.

As well as ensuring the Pool is safe for bathers, correct training in operating pools can in the long term be very cost effective for a number of reasons, including reduction on chemical & heating cost, correct staffing levels and a clean, clear pool can encourage more bathers. 

BRIO Specialise in Operating pools in accordance with UK & EU standards, and can offer a range of services and training to Pool operators to ensure they are up to date and fully trained to operate their pool correctly and in accordance with health & safety.

The Swimming Pool Technical Operator (SPTO) Course, which is the 3 Day Pool Plant Qualification developed by BRIO Group last year and accredited by PWTAG, has now been officially accredited by IOSH. This is the second Pool Plant Course to be accredited by IOSH, and shows the level of Health & Safety information and teaching within the course syllabus which is essential for Pool Operators nowadays.

The Onsite Designated Supervisors (ODS) course was first to be accredited, by IOSH & PWTAG and is the 2 day onsite practical qualification, and has been a huge success since it came on the market last September. It has been booked out across the UK and Ireland, and the SPTO is set for the same success.

Health & Safety of Swimming & Spa Pool Operations have been sorely overlooked in many centres, and with the emphasis on the Pool Operators or Owners to ensure their pool is run to the latest industry standards, that their employees are fully trained and operational to run the pool safely, these courses ensure that high standards are met, by independent, experienced tutors, and in keeping with latest industry guidelines.
