Swimming Pool Safety

Swimming Safety Tips ~ Prevent Accidents

  • Use non-slip materials on the pool deck, diving board and ladders.
  • Electrical equipment should be installed by a licensed electrician in accordance with local safety codes. Faulty electrical installations could cause serous or fatal electric shock.
  • Incorporate steps or a ladder at both ends of the pool.
  • Mark water depths clearly, and use a safety float line where the bottom slope deepens.
  • Enclose the pool with a high fence, equipped with self-closing, and self-latching gates.
  • All doors which give access to a swimming pool should be equipped with an audible alarm which sounds when the door and/or gate is opened.
  • Keep a life saving floatation device near the pool.
  • Learn more about pool safety at the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission’s website: www.cpsc.gov
