Leitfaden zur Durchführung sicherer Saunaaufgüsse (German by Dr. Karsten Gröning

By Dr. Karsten Gröning

In den letzten 50 Jahren ist das Saunabad zu einer festen Größe im Rahmen der Freizeitgestaltung der Bundesbürger geworden, und die öffentlichen Saunaanlagen haben sich von „Anhängseln“ in medizinischen Bädern oder Massagestudios zu beachtlichen Wellnesstempeln entwickelt. Im krassen Gegensatz zu dieser Entwicklung im Bereich der „Hardware“ konnte die Qualifikation der Mitarbeiter in Saunaanlagen nicht Schritt halten und wurde – aus welchen Gründen auch immer – weniger stark vorangetrieben als der Ausbau der Bäder. In Zeiten knapper Kassen führt dies zu der Feststellung, dass viele öffentliche Saunaanlagen zwar über herausragende Einrichtungen und Ausstattungen verfügen, diese jedoch häufig mit schlecht qualifizierten Mitarbeitern betrieben werden. In der Konsequenz bleiben die Beratungsleistungen und die Dienstleistungsqualität der Bäder weit hinter den Möglichkeiten zurück und nicht selten kommt es aus Unwissenheit oder auf der foundation falscher Einweisungen zu Zwischenfällen in den Anlagen.

Der vorliegende „Leitfaden zur Durchführung von sicheren Saunaaufgüs-sen“ soll nicht nur deutlich machen, warum der Einsatz von Fachpersonal in öffentlichen Saunaanlagen unverzichtbar ist, sondern räumt auch mit zahlreichen Fehlern und Falschinformationen rund um das Saunabad auf. Der Leitfaden ist dabei so aufgebaut und geschrieben, dass die beteiligten Akteure der Saunabranche auf die typischen Risiken in den Bädern hingewiesen werden und gleichzeitig Lösungsmöglichkeiten angeboten bekommen. Im Ergebnis soll durch die Umsetzung des Leitfadens die Durchführung von Saunaaufgüssen sicherer gemacht werden.
