Sanitation Safety Planning (SSP) is a step-by-step risk based approach to assist in the implementation of the 2006 WHO Guidelines for Safe Use of Wastewater, Excreta and Greywater. The approach can also be applied to all sanitary systems to ensure the system is managed to meet health objectives. The SSP approach requires identifying health risks in the sanitation system, implementing an improvement plan and conducting regular monitoring. SSP can be used at the planning stage for new schemes, and to improve the performance of existing systems.
