What do you know about the impact of drowning?

  • Rating: 0 after 1 vote

The White Paper written by National Swimming Pool Foundation, published this past May, talks about drowning, saying "drowning has a substantial personal, societal and financial impact. There is a lot to understand, and the financial impact for one, is huge. In fact, financial impact of drowning is about $100 billion for the past 20 years. You can learn more by reading the White Paper at http://www.stepintoswim.org/.

The more adventurous people get, the higher the risk of pool accidents. Pool accidents often end with tragic impacts for the victim and their family. However, pool owners are severely impacted too, in terms of liability. All pools have a duty to warn because water presents a very real hazard to people who are unaware – from diving in shallow water to precautions to avoid drowning.

So, if your property has a pool, it is your responsibility to have pool safety signs that effectively communicate probable hazards and safety. Unfortunately, most signs in use fail to achieve this; and drowning ranks fifth among the leading causes of accidental death in the US (according to figures published by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention).

These are colorful, use eye-catching symbols and are designed in compliance with the latest ANSI and ISO safety sign standards.
