Swimming pools are dangerous additions to any property. This is clear from the simple fact that so many public swimming pools have lifeguards on duty at all times. While swimming pools offer fun and recreation, they pose numerous risks that need to be addressed.
Some of the safety issues that occur in public swimming pools include:
- Lack of proper warnings regarding depth
- Lack of appropriate or functional fencing
- Lack of safety equipment
- Lack of lifeguard
- Improperly trained lifeguards
While the expectations regarding safety at a private swimming pool are different, the same risks can exist, including:
- Hypoxia (oxygen deprivation) resulting in brain damage
- Head or brain injuries or other serious injuries from slip and falls on wet surfaces
