Checklist: Swimming Pool Safety
Why Read This
Accidents in and around swimming pools have cost United Educators (UE) and its members millions of dollars. Common claims include drownings and near drownings; head injuries and broken bones; lacerations; slip-and-fall cases; and burns, rashes, and respiratory illnesses.
This checklist — intended for institutions that own or operate pools, individual pool operators and supervisors, and athletic administrators and coaches — provides an overview of pool safety considerations, especially in supervision and operation.
