DROWNING PREVENTION WEEK (19-26 June 2021)

WATER SAFETY IN SWIMMING POOLS

Around 700 people drown in the UK and Ireland every year and many more suffer injury, some life-changing, through non-fatal experiences. More people die from drowning in the UK and Ireland than from domestic fires or cycling accidents.

More UK children die in pools while abroad on holiday than in pools in the UK. Make sure you and others are safe in swimming pools in the UK and abroad.

Swimming Pool Safety Tips

  • Keep young children under constant supervision

  • Follow the pool rules (don’t dive into the shallow end)

  • Take time to check the depth, water flow and layout of the pool, especially at leisure pools and holiday resorts

  • Never enter the water after drinking alcohol

Please enjoy the water safely this Summer!
