POTABLE WATER QUALITY ASSESSMENTS
The potential health impacts from poorly managed potable water can be severe, which can be enhanced at remote locations. Hence there is a requirement for a workplace to ensure that a supply of clean, cool, drinking water is provided for, and is readily accessible to, anyone at the workplace.
If the water system is not on scheme water or it is at a distance from the end of scheme water then a management plan, guidance document and sampling strategy will be required to ensure that the potable water meets the requirements of the Australian Drinking Water Guidelines. These documents can provide a minimum for managing the potable water system.
