HSG:282 Spa Pool Guidance

Control of legionella and other infectious agents in spa-pool systems

HSE’s guide The control of legionella and other infectious agents in spa-pool systems, produced in consultation with Public Health England, and local authority and industry representatives, will help managers and operators assess and control the risk of exposure. It will also help service suppliers, designers, manufacturers, importers, suppliers and installers comply with their legal duties and keep spa-pool systems free of legionella.

As well as advice on operating and maintaining commercial-type systems, the guide provides specific advice on domestic-type spa pools or hot tubs used as part of a business activity, e.g. in holiday-park rental units, hotel bedrooms with a dedicated spa and systems on display or at exhibitions.
