What is O and M Programme for Water Softener Installation?
According to Indian Government, water supply and sanitation are considered state subjects, and States are responsible for the planning, implementation, operation, and cost recovery of water supply and sanitation projects!
The goal of effective water softener operation and maintenance is to supply safe drinking water in the specified quality and quantity, with enough pressure at a convenient location and time, at a reasonable cost, on a long-term basis.
The Government of India's “Ministry of Drinking Water and Sanitation” develops policy guidelines for the rural water supply and sanitation sector and provides technical assistance to states and rural local bodies (GPs/VWSC) when needed.

Guidelines for Safety in Water Softener Operation
Operators of Water Softeners work both indoors and outdoors, and are subjected to machine noise and noxious odours. Operators' jobs are physically demanding, and they frequently operate in filthy environments.
Furthermore, because plants are open 24 hours a day, seven days a week, operators rotate through three eight-hour shifts, including weekends and holidays. Overtime may be required.
Operators of Water Softeners are also exposed to a number of hazardous chemical agents found in effluents and reagents used in wastewater processing, as well as those generated during the treatment of wastewaters. Acute poisoning, chemical accidents (e.g., skin burns, eye injuries, etc.), respiratory system damage, allergies, dermatitis, chronic diseases, and other conditions may be caused by these chemical substances.
Occupational safety and health (OSH) factors are becoming increasingly important in today's workplace. To decrease OSH risks in the operation of Water Softeners, it is vital to identify hazards and create preventative and remedial actions.
