How to be Pool Safe this Summer Season

Water play is a great way to keep active yet stay cool.

Like all outdoor play the key to minimising accidents and incidents is active, engaged adult supervision at all times. Children have been known to drown in as a little as 5 centimetres of water.

Now that summer is here it is a good time to go through your water safety checklist. Use the list below to help decrease drowning hazards and ensure safe water play for children.

  • Always give constant adult supervision when in or near water and within arm’s reach for children under five
  • Remember floatation devices are not lifesaving devices
  • Familiarise children with water and teach them to swim
  • Learn resuscitation or take a refresher course

Also, if you own a backyard pool or visit one:

  • Never leave items against the fence that children can use to climb up
  • Always close the pool gate
  • Check that the pool fence is in good condition and the gate is self-closing and self-locking
  • Keep a CPR chart in the pool area

Did you know that some councils provide swimming programs for adults and children. Contact your local council for more information? Alternatively, visit Swim School Australia to locate your nearest swim school.
