Pool safety should be a number one concern for any hotel or apartment complex with pool access. Pool injuries are common and can mean trouble for hotel and apartment managers if the proper safety precautions aren’t taken to prevent injury.
To encourage pool safety, there are a few simple rules to follow:
Always have rules and safety guidelines clearly posted. This includes information like lifeguard on-duty hours, pool hours, and emergency contact information. Set limits on capacities and what kinds of objects can be brought into the pool and surrounding area.
Encourage parents to guardians to keep a close eye on their kids when playing in the pool. Pool safety notices should be readily available in any hotel room or to tenants. If lifeguards are on duty, make sure they are trained in all basic pool safety procedures – as well as any specific to your pool.
Finally, make sure your pool receives regular and required maintenance checks to make sure all equipment is working well. Safety is vitally important and can be achieved by following and enforcing simple safety procedures.
