Managing Health & Safety States
113 When the pool is in use, there must be a safe system of work to identify a person in difficulty and ensure that a rescue can be performed. For example, in the absence of lifeguards, there should be designated ‘on-call’ competent staff, to respond immediately to deal with any emergency. They should be suitably trained and capable of reaching the poolside in time to perform a rescue and provide emergency first aid if the alarm is raised. (HSG179)
The Emergency Response Pool Programme (ER-Pool) is designed to assist designated staff to respond to an emergency within the swimming pool environment when the alarm has been raised. The Emergency Responder can be any member of the facility called upon to rescue and provide first aid.
ER-Pool is also a suitable qualification to back up and support the lifeguard team.
The ER-Pool programme is designed for use in small pools no greater than 1.5m in depth such as a spa, health, leisure club or hotel pool.
For pools that require direct supervision on poolside and for larger pools, the RLSS UK National Pool Lifeguard Qualification would be more suitable.
This Emergency Response programme is made up of three sections covering the following:
The emergency responder’s role, Pool Safety Operating Procedures, types of pools and swimmer safety information
Responding to an emergency and the Emergency Action Plan
CPR and First Aid Training
|Section 1||1 hour|
|Section 2||4 hours|
|Section 3||8 hours|
