Ah, the swimming pool. A place for adults to attempt to relax while the children exhaust themselves. Oh, you know how it goes: baking in the hot sun, your head on a swivel as the children scream every minute, an occasional splash or whistle blow, sunscreen application every hour. Don’t forget the constant reiteration of the “No Running!!” rule. As a parent, your main concern is the safety of the children.
Whether you’re a pool owner, employee, or a visitor, enforcing and following rules and guidelines is crucial to reduce the unique risks presented by a pool. Safety is the number one priority at any pool.
As a patron visiting the pool with your children, be mindful of these guidelines:
Hotel/public pool owners and the lifeguards employed are responsible for behind the scenes precautions that ensure utmost safety. As a patron, knowing the responsibilities of the aquatic center increases your peace of mind regarding the safety of your children.
Aquatic centers follow very specific guidelines for cleanliness and safety for all patrons. Between the lifeguards on duty and the parents watching over, the safety of pools is typically well-managed. Have fun this summer!
