Health and Safety Assurance

Performing required list of tests Azecolab can identify microbial and chemical hazards in the swimming pools and similar recreational water environments.

The risk of illness or infection associated with swimming pools and similar recreational water environments is primarily associated with faecal contamination of the water. This may be due to faeces released by the bathers or contaminated source water or, in the case of outdoor pools, may be the result of direct animal contamination (e.g. from birds and rodents). Many of the outbreaks related to pools and similar environments have occurred because disinfection was not applied or was inadequate. Non-faecal human shedding into the pool water or surrounding area is also a potential source of pathogenic organisms.

Chemicals found in swimming pool water can be derived from a number of sources, namely the source water, deliberate additions such as disinfectants and pool users themselves (these include sweat, urine, soap residues, cosmetics and suntan oil)

What is the scope of this program?
