Spot the dangers: Take care, swimming pools can be hazardous. Water presents a risk of drowning, and injuries can occur from hitting the hard surrounds, or from misuse of the equipment; every pool is different, so always make sure you know how deep the water is and check for other hazards such as steep slopes into deep water. Always swim within your ability: Never swim after a heavy meal or after alcohol; avoid holding your breath and swimming long distances underwater; be especially careful if you have a medical condition such as epilepsy, asthma, diabetes or heart problems; follow advice provided for the safety of yourself and others; avoid unruly behaviour; always do what the Pool Staff ask you.
