EN 1069-2:2017 (E) 6 3.2 platform area providing access to the start section 3.3 raft type of ride enhancement device for one or more users 4 Operation 4.1 General EN 15288-2 applies and EN 15288-1 shall be considered if appropriate. The following subclauses give specific advice related to water slides. 4.2 Guidelines to the operational risk assessment An operational risk assessment shall be performed by the slide operator, based on the results of the design risk assessment, as a basis for the identification of the proper supervision, following the requirements of EN 15288-2. In addition, and referring to the fact that impact between the users proved to be a critical issue, also the following risks shall be taken into consideration: a) inappropriate spacing at the start between users; b) sliding position (e.g. sitting) can bring the user to an involuntary stop; c) significant differences in speed can cause collisions of users; d) significant differences in speed caused by: 1) different sliding positions; 2) different bathing costume respectively wearing hardly any bathing costume (e.g. G-string type); 3) different fitness, size, weight and age of user; 4) Stopping or changing water flow rate (malfunction of water supply); e) reasonably foreseeable risky behaviours by the users: 1) higher risk of collision between users at a splashdown area in contrast to a catch unit; f) suitability for children; g) foreseeable users categories (e.g. adults, children, both) and number of users (e.g. chain sliding allowed); h) allowed use of ride enhancement devices (e.g. mattresses, rafts); i) Unauthorised access. Examples of general and specific risk assessments are given in Annex B. SIST EN 1069-2:2017

EN 1069-2:2017 (E) 7 4.3 Risk reduction The operator shall take measures to reduce possible risks to a minimum bearing in mind the risky behaviours of users by choosing an appropriate level of distance control and supervision and shall identify a risk reduction strategy from the following options: a) permanent full supervision by the staff at the start section and at the splashdown area/catch unit, staff is in communication with each other; b) adequate technical distance control, e.g. turnstiles at the entrance and/or exit area and/or a traffic light control at the entrance; c) a proper level of supervision/technical measures as a result of the risk assessment. Additional safety equipment which may be used: d) For the user: The installation of a monitor at the start section that transmits the situation at the end of the slide and at the catch unit/splashdown area for the person who is starting to see whether the catch unit or the splashdown area of the pool is free. e) For the supervisory staff: The installation of a monitor at the staff terminal that transmits the situation at the start and the end of the slide and at the catch unit/splashdown area. The quality of technical distance control equipment depends on the risk assessment and should be carried out in accordance with EN ISO 13849-2. 4.4 Basic elements for the identification of proper supervision The operator, by performing the part of the risk assessment concerning proper supervision, shall take into account at least the following: a) kind of landing: 1) catch unit; 2) sofa unit; 3) special pool and its water depth at landing; 4) general purpose pool and its water depth at landing; b) speed at the final part; c) presence and kind of distance control: 1) full technical distance control; 2) traffic lights; 3) other types; d) visibility for the user: 1) slide fully visible from the start; 2) catch unit visible from the start; 3) pool visible from the start. SIST EN 1069-2:2017

EN 1069-2:2017 (E) 8 The use of mandatory and prohibition signs and public information symbols should also be considered when determining the proper supervision to enforce them. 4.5 Technical operation Written guidelines shall be produced concerning operational instructions by the operator paying particular attention to operational safety aspects (e.g. starting procedure, sliding speed of the users – see EN 1069-1:2017, 7.13). These instructions shall comprise: — detailed explanation of the controls and their function; — recommended user access and egress procedures, exclusively allowed sliding positions and any limitations necessary to prevent static overload of the water slide; — the prescribed limiting conditions stating any limitations for user, the limits of speed of operation, the sliding time and the maximum numbers of user to be carried; — emergency evacuation procedures; — any environmental limitations, e.g. conditions of wind, rain, snow during which the water slide shall not be operated; — details of the maintenance, service or repairs, qualification of the maintenance staff and specification about selection of proper spare parts. 4.6 Emergency instructions Written guidelines for emergency situations shall be produced for competent staff by the operator in association with the statutory authorities. 4.7 Incident logbook All incidents, including accidents, occurring with the use of a slide shall be recorded, monitored and analysed regularly to ensure that the necessary improvement of the design, operation or maintenance of the slide are made in order to prevent accidents as far as possible in future. 5 Instructions for users 5.1 Planning and use of signage It is the responsibility of the manufacturer to define and notify/supply the proper signage at the time of commissioning. Based on the results of the risk assessment the operator shall identify and install any possible additional signage pertinent to the safe use and operation of the specific water slide. Where safety signs are required they shall be designed in accordance with ISO 3864-1 and ISO 3864-3, and safety signs from ISO 20712-1 and ISO 7010 used when applicable. In addition to any relevant graphical symbols from ISO 20712-1, ISO 7010 and ISO 7001, a list of safety signs and information signs related to use of water slides is presented in Annex A. Relevant graphical symbols shall be assembled on multiple signs, see ISO 20712-3. Public information symbols shall be designed in accordance with ISO 22727 and public information symbols from ISO 7001 used when applicable. SIST EN 1069-2:2017

EN 1069-2:2017 (E) 9 A written supplementary text, in the language(s) of the country where the slide is installed shall be added possibly with translation into other language(s). The minimum supplementary text is shown below each graphical symbol (see figures in Annex A). The minimum text height of upper case letters shall be 15 mm. New graphical symbols additional to those given in this standard shall be designed in accordance with ISO 3864-1 and ISO 3864-3 for safety signs, and ISO 22727 for public information symbols. The graphical symbols should be tested for comprehension according to ISO 9186-1. If the comprehension score does not meet the criteria for acceptance set for ISO 7010 or ISO 7001 as relevant, the graphical symbol shall be accompanied by supplementary text. 5.2 Signage at the entrance of a slide The graphical symbols required to be included in the signage system shall include all those determined as a result of the risk assessment. From slide Type 1.2 onwards minimum signage shall be clearly displayed at the entrance of the means of access and on the platform, complying with the template given in Figure 1. In addition, where more than one slide starts from the same platform, specific information for each slide shall be displayed before entering its start section. The following minimum required safety signs and public information symbols shall be displayed on the multiple sign: a) the severity of the ride, by using the designated information sign and using the following colour code: 1) blue for easy (Types 2, 3, 6.1 where relevant); 2) red for medium (Types 4, 6.2, 7, 8, 9 and 10 where relevant); 3) black for severe (Types 5 and 10 where relevant); b) minimum height of the user and additionally for Types 1 and 2 maximum height of the user; c) height of fall landing, if > 200 mm; d) water depth in the splashdown area; e) instructions to clear quickly the landing area after the ride; f) the only mandatory sliding position or, if more than one position is allowed, the relevant information signs; g) the mandatory use of ride enhancement devices (e.g. single or multiple rafts, mattresses). It is the responsibility of the manufacturer to define the above mentioned information and requirements to display them at the time of commissioning. If a special feature has been incorporated in the design, e.g. the possibility of becoming involuntary airborne, special water/light/sound effects, then the user shall be warned at least prior to use the slide. Conforming to the result of the operational risk assessment (see EN 15288-2) the operator may add, under his responsibility, more information/warnings/prohibitions/mandatory signs or alter those given by the manufacturer, except a), paying attention to the possibility to reach all users categories in the specific environment.

Frequency of maintenance if not regulated by statutory requirements or manufacturer's instructions shall be at least once a year. Maintenance, repair and modification shall be recorded, in a maintenance logbook, and monitored by the operator. These instructions shall comprise: — lifespan; — a list of those components (e.g. joints, surfaces) which require regular inspection, the recommended frequency of inspection (preferably expressed in service hours), and the method of inspection, e.g. visual; — a list of any specific tests to be carried out; — recommendations regarding electrical maintenance; — requirements for cleaning and maintenance particular of stressed stainless steel and GRP (glass-reinforced plastics); — recommendations regarding removing deposits from the slide itself, e.g. calcium, body fats. SIST EN 1069-2:2017

EN 1069-2:2017 (E) 13 Whether contracted or not, all maintenance work on a water slide shall be carried out by, or under the direct supervision of persons trained or experienced in the maintenance procedures. These procedures shall include preventive maintenance and component monitoring, taking into account any instructions from, or consultation with, the manufacturer and the independent inspection body. All guards, fences, equipment enclosures and access doors, which are removed for servicing or maintenance purposes, shall be replaced and effectively secured in position before operation. Safety signs may need to be displayed during any of the operations (see ISO 7010 for relevant safety signs). 7.2 Servicing The servicing intervals recommended by the manufacturer shall not be exceeded, unless any extension in the period has been agreed and approved either with the manufacturer in writing or with the approval of the independent inspection body. The frequencies at which servicing is carried out shall be in compliance with manufacturer's recommendations. Servicing recommendations shall deal with all components that have to be checked, tested, adjusted or replaced at specified intervals. 7.3 Repair The repair of damaged parts shall be carried out with caution, as this could lead to an alteration of the approved original design. For example, the stiffening or strengthening of one component can produce higher stresses in adjacent components which, in turn, fail. Welding shall follow the provisions in standards EN ISO 15607, EN ISO 3834 (all parts), etc. Welding may be a safety-critical modification, requiring approval by the manufacturer and inspection body. A welder shall follow the appropriate European Standards and shall be qualified to EN ISO 9606-1 and shall use the correct materials and techniques. Changes of this kind shall be regarded as modifications and dealt with in the manner specified below. 7.4 Modifications Any modification to: — structures and mechanical parts; — safety critical components; — emergency equipment; — performances shall only be carried out after consultation with the manufacturer and/or the independent inspection body. Following any such modification, those parts involved, shall be subjected to further thorough inspection by an independent inspection body and update of the risk assessment before the water slide is taken back into use. The approved documentation shall be included in the logbook. Even apparently insignificant modifications may lead to the accelerated failure of the components of a device, and using a device outside the manufacturer’s specification or the specific environment for which it was designed, is a safety-critical modification. The inspection report concerning a repair or modification shall be included in the logbook. SIST EN 1069-2:2017
