The Holiday Let Hot Tub
HSE’s guide The Control of Legionella and Other Infectious Agents in Spa-Pool Systems, produced in consultation with Public Health England, is a code of practice to assess and control the risk of exposure to people offering domestic-type spa pools or hot tubs as part of a business activity, e.g. in holiday park rental units, holiday lets, caravan parks, hotel bedrooms with a dedicated spa and systems on display or at exhibitions.
Although the HSG282 is not statutory law, it is considered best practice and is viewed as an approved code of practice. The standard would be used in a court of law as a measure of whether or not a risk holder has complied as far a reasonably practical to meet the requirements of the Health & Safety at Work Act 1974.
The best practice guidelines including having hot tubs that are fitted with constant chemical dosing systems, simplified control systems, high performance filters and the removal of air blowers. Pool Spas can help holiday let companies meet the hardware requirements by supplying HSG282 compliant hot tubs but also advise on all other aspects of the act including testing and your responsibilities between now rental clients.
