Course description: According to § 37 IfSG the water in swimming pools and public bathing areas, be they open to the public or reserved for certain swimmers (hospitals or resorts), must be in such a condition that the people using the facilities cannot be harmed or have damages to their health due to infection or other factors. There is a rule book which describes how to work with chlorination units and systems (BGR 108 Betrieb von Bädern), which in January 2013 replaced the former regulations (Unfallverhütungsvorschrift BGV D5 “Chlorung von Wasser”). Only people who have been trained and who have proved to be competent are allowed to work with and supervise such systems in pools.

This means they must ensure that all parts and technical units are installed correctly and remains in good working order, as well as keeping an eye on the users of the pools when they are in or around the water itself.
