Pool safety seminar offered

The Department of Environmental Health is offering a seminar for anyone involved in the design and building of swimming pools and spas in the Cayman Islands.

Titled ‘Environmental Health Design Requirements for Swimming Pools and Spas,’ the seminar will be held on 5 December, from 9:30am to 11:30am in the Multipurpose Hall at the University College of the Cayman Islands.

It is targeting architects, engineers and other persons involved in the design of swimming pools, but all interested persons are welcome, said a GIS press release. The seminar is free of cost to the public.

‘The seminar will review the DEH’s requirements for swimming pools,’ said Bentley Vaughan, the department’s engineering and development control officer. ‘This will assist designers in providing appropriate data, and in ensuring that pools meet public health requirements, overall making the approval process much easier.’

Mr. Vaughan will be the facilitator for the workshop. A chartered engineer, he has more than 20 years experience in environmental engineering and is a certified pool operator with the US National Swimming Pool Foundation.


Those interested in attending this seminar should contact Tania Johnson at 949-6696 or 244-1452 (direct line) or email [email protected] to reserve their space.
