Swimming Pool Safety, Get it Right!

Sep 8, 2008
Swimming is an exciting and fun activity that any one of any age can do. Especially when summer draws near people start to anticipate and dream about spending days beside the pool. Whether or not you are lucky enough to have your own pool or you regularly visit the local centre or even go abroad, there are various safety precautions you must take, both for your self and your family. As you do not want a day of fun to end up being a day of hell.

There are a few basic safety tips that you should know before you go for a swim, especially if you have kids by your side. Firstly you should never leave kids that are around the pool unattended, they should always be under supervisory guidance. I say this because even though a child may be a good swimmer it only takes a mouthful of water before they start to panic and lose control. It would also be a wise idea to learn a few CPR techniques, so if the worst does occur you could be potentially saving a child's or adult's life.

Secondly kids are very mischievous they can be gone in an instant, so if you have a pool of your own I would get some sort or barricade, so that they simply cannot access the pool while you are not around. It would also be a great idea to get a sensor alarm fitted so that if they do somehow manage to get through the locked apparatus, you will be warned by the alarm sirens.

Next you should not leave pieces of luggage or items around the pool area; this is a very dangerous hazard. As any one could come running along totally oblivious to the item on the floor and trip over, hit there heads and fall into the pool.

Finally you should never have the influence of alcohol around a swimming pool. The reason for this is that when people have had one too many to drink, they believe they are invincible and do life threatening stunts around the pool. So many times have people been injured performing drunken stunts.

Remember to keep yourself and your kid's safe around the pool. Swimming can be a fun activity for the whole family, but safety must always come first. If you think something looks hazardous or out of place I would stay very far away.
