pools guideWater safety is a major concern for all Australians. It is the responsibility of all adults to ensure that children are well supervised at public pools and aquatic centres at all times. In response to this, Pro-Visual Publishing, in partnership with Swim Australia, has released their newest edition of the National Guide to Public Pools & Aquatic Centres 2015/16.

This Year’s guide covers Swim Australia’s SwimSAFER Story, which includes key messages on the adoption of the four layers of protection. These layers of protection include – Be Aware, Be Secure, Be Confident and Be Prepared – and must be implemented at all times in order to prevent tragedies from occurring.

The layers of protection can be applied to different environments such as home pools, bath tubs, wading and portable pools, public pools, rural and remote inland waterways and beach and coastal waterways ensuring that children are safe around water.

While lifeguards plays a pivotal position in supervision at public publics pools, it is everyone’s responsibility to maintain and ensure the safety of children.

I would like to thank all of the sponsors of the inaugural National Guide to Public Pools & Aquatic Centres 2014/15. Their support has made it possible for the Guide to be distributed free of charge” – John Hutchings, CEO, Pro-Visual Publishing.
