Did you know that drowning was the second leading cause of death in America? With many of these tragic events occurring as a result of improper safety measures in the pool area. Drowning is a major problem that we should care more about as a society and do everything in our willpower to prevent such an unfortunate travesty.
Pool safety is something we should all care about. Especially, when it pertains to our children’s lives being at stake. We would do anything to protect our kids, yet many parents would let children swim in pools with no lifeguard on duty and not knowing the proper precautionary safety rules. Our children’s safety should be our number one priority and if you see a pool without safety signage, we highly advise you to not allow your children to swim unless you have full supervision of your children and watching them like a hawk. When there is no safety signage, contact the administration of the given establishment of the pool and inform them to purchase this signage or else you won’t attend there anymore and inform them of the risks that occur when they do not have any signage up.
The easiest way to increase Pool Safety is with having a lifeguard on duty at all hours. This way, there will always be a safety supervisor for the children. In reality, having a lifeguard available at all hours is not a possibility for most. What do you do when you are left with this scenario?
The answer to that should be a no-brainer, invest in Safety Signage for Pools. A Pool Rules Sign goes a long way in increasing safety measures. It can inform swimmers that they should not be running. Running on a slippery surface can lead to a child falling down or worse by getting a severe injury. We want to do everything we can to prevent this. A Pool Rules Sign can warn swimmers of other potential detriments that can impact their health and safety. Important information on a Pool Rules Sign typically includes warnings of No Food or Beverage allowed, No Running, No Pets allowed, No Diving, the maximum quantity of the Bathing load allowed, No Glass allowed and other vital information that is often overlooked by many. Why are these simple rules more important than we think?
Well for starters, there are so many little incidents that can occur in a Pool area that are often neglected. With food or beverages, this can often contaminate the water and can potentially get into our systems. Also, when we are eating and then participating in physical activity, directly afterwards is not recommended by many health experts. Pets can often be a distraction and should not be allowed in many pool areas as they have to be always supervised. Diving can lead to a child hitting their head on the bottom of the surface or another tragic accident that can be prevented. Diving in pools is rarely recommended for many reasons because this is one of the major contributors to accidents in swimming pools.
A Pool Rules Sign is a smart inexpensive investment in order to ensure everyone is safe in your pool area. A Pool Rules sign should meet all MUTCD regulations to ensure easy to read visibility, durability and the best signs available on the market to ensure safety is a priority.
