The aim of this manual is to provide practical guidance to facilitate Water Safety Plan (WSP) development focusing particularly on organized water supplies managed by a water utility or similar entity. It includes points to consider when developing and implementing a WSP. The manual is divided into 11 modules, each representing a key step in the WSP development and implementation process. Every module is divided into three sections. The overview section provides a brief introduction to the module, including why it is important and how it fits into the overall WSP development and implementation process. The examples and tools section provides resources which could be adapted to support the development and implementation of WSPs. These resources include example tables and checklists, template forms, diagrams, or practical tips to help a WSP team address specific challenges. Case studies present lessons-learned from real-life experiences. They are intended to make WSP concepts more concrete and to help readers anticipate issues and challenges that may arise. The descriptions were drawn from WSP initiatives in Australia, the Latin American and the Caribbean region (LAC), and the United Kingdom
