Ponds, Pools and Lochans

5.10 Health and safety

Pond construction schemes should be preceded by appropriate safety audits. For large organisations this is likely to be a standard practice supervised by the relevant health and safety staff.

Voluntary groups should carry out safety checks using the procedures developed by Scottish Conservation Projects (SCP) and the British Trust for Conservation Volunteers (BTCV). Further information can be obtained from these organisations (addresses are given in Appendix 1).
