Swim-a-Lap Day is a great excuse to play with water, but as long as you stay safe around water. Here are some safety tips to look at before you go swimming:
  • Swim at pools and beaches supervised by lifeguards.
  • See and obey pool or beach rules.
  • Have the appropriate rescue equipment, life jackets, and a first aid kit.
  • Never go for swimming alone.
  • Keep constant checks on kids when they are near water, as they are many accidents of drowning kids.
  • Walk slowly near pool and don’t run.
  • Swim at a safer depth. If you are a learner, swim at shallow end.
  • Don’t eat or chew gum while swimming, as you can choke.
  • If you are at beach, avoid throwing broken glass bottles, as they don’t jell well with bare feet.
  • Do wear plenty of waterproof sunscreen with higher SFP before leaving home to protect skin from harmful ultra violet. Carry accessories like sunglasses and hats.
  • Don’t share your beach towels with anyone and many more...
