As summertime and pool season approaches, it’s important to be aware of some basic pool and water safety rules. Spending hours out by the pool with friends and family is a great way to bond and make lasting memories but it’s important to make sure that some precautions are taken.
Drowning is one of the leading causes of accidental deaths among children, not just here in the US, but all around the world as well. This normally happens in residential pools where we feel the greatest sense of safety and security. We are far more likely to be alert at the water park or splash pad when we aren’t as familiar with our surroundings.
This is why homes with swimming pools on their property should observe some basic pool and water safety rules every time. Other risks that are posed by pool water are spread of contagious illness, injuries and skin diseases that could be acquired through dirty water. You should never expose your families to these kinds of threat. Be responsible enough to avoid unfortunate events from happening around pool and water.
Here are some of the pool and water safety rules you should observe:
If you are swimming in public pool, lake or private resort, you should read all the swimming rules that are given by the owner or management of the property. Always keep in mind that you should never trust your kids alone in the water even though they already know how to swim. As much as possible, swim in a place where lifeguard is available. Your and your family’s safety should come first before enjoying the pool. At home, be extra cautious and don’t get complacent.
