Aquatic Site-Specific Operational Procedures

Amotto Consultancy writes site-specific operational procedures (SSOPs) for aquatic facilities. These are required by all commercial facilities to comply with the requirements of the Health and Safety at Work Act 2015 (HSWA 2015).

Our experience in writing operational procedures is extensive and includes a wide portfolio of councils, retirement villages (individually and across portfolios), schools and fitness centres.

The SSOPs are written in accordance with NZS 5826:2010, NZS 4441:2008 and your specific industry (i.e. Ministry of Education (MOE)) guidelines. Information included within the operational procedures manual is based around the following aspects:

  • plant/asset information
  • water testing procedures and guidelines
  • faecal accident response procedures
  • maintenance procedures, and
  • health and safety guidelines.

The operational procedures are written in an informative language that is easy to follow and understand. Although aspects of the procedures are tailored to suit each specific site, implementing them across a portfolio enables consistency across all maintenance procedures and subsequently the presentation of each facility.

Experience has shown us that the operational requirements of a facility are often completed or overseen by a single individual. However, when this person leaves or is unable to attend work unexpectantly, if there are no operational procedures available for the relief staff member to refer to, the site is exposed to an element of risk in terms of what is required and how it is to be completed.

Amotto Consultancy can assist with the initial development and/or ongoing maintenance of site-specific operational procedures and provide expertise to mitigate risk, meet industry guidelines and comply with HSWA 2015 requirements.

Note: Amotto Consultancy also has experience in writing SSOPs for recreational (dry site) facilities.
