The American National Standards Institute (ANSI) and OSHA require commercial swimming pools must have emergency eye wash stations. Not having an eye wash station is one of the top OSHA citations. Injuries can arise when the corrosive pool chemicals come into contact with an employee’s eyes. Having a location to flush out the substances will protect employees from injuries.
The American’s with Disabilities Act requires public pools to be accessible for those with certain disabilities. Newly constructed or renovated swimming pools, wading pools and spas are required to have a specific number of accessible entrances and exits depending on their size. Many pools ensure compliance by installing pool lifts or sloped entries. Read more about ADA »
