Water Quality Safety Guidelines

Pool water quality and ideal balances can be hard to maintain and hard to understand. At the end of the day, when swimming teachers and students go home, if they are experiencing rashes and burning eyes then something needs to be adjusted in the chemical balance.

The Pool Operators Handbook provides a guide as to Laws, regulations and guidelines, responsibilities and risk management. From the perspective of our members and fellow swimming teachers, a strong collective voice from teachers is vital to ensuring that their safety and the safety of their students is maintained.

The Swim Instructors Association (SIA) has been established by a group of senior swim instructors in conjunction with the Australian Workers’ Union. It was born in response to a number of serious issues of illegal underpayment and allegations of unfair treatment to ensure that instructors, both now and into the future, are treated fairly and given a voice.
