The Approved Code also gives guidance on compliance with relevant parts of the Management of Health and Safety at Work Regulations 1999. The first covers general safety issues, such as the identification, assessment, prevention or control and management of the risk, plus matters of training and competence and good record keeping. Part 2 reflects more precise issues, including control of the bacteria in water or cooling systems, management of cooling towers, treatment programmes, monitoring, cleaning and disinfection, hot and cold water services and matters relating to system design and construction.
