Water Safety advice for the Holidays

Lauching the recent national Water Safety Week, the STA's President Richard Timms said: 

Water Safety Booklet thumbnail"Enjoying water – whether at a beach or in a swimming pool on holiday or taking a relaxing walk along a canal or river – is one of life’s pleasures but it’s important that people of all ages understand how to be safe in and around water, especially at this time of year with summer approaching.

For families who will be preparing to go on holiday, it is important that children understand the Water Safety Code. To help with the learning process, we’ve created a free downloadable water safety booklet.

The 24-page booklet, which has been launched for National Water Safety Week, features fun puzzles and activities to teach children how to stay safe in the pool and in the sea, as well as general water safety awareness in different environments and potential hazards, added Richard.

Water Safety Code

Spot the Dangers

Water may look safe, but it can be dangerous; learn to spot and keep away from dangers. You may swim well in a warm indoor pool, but that does not mean that you’d be able to swim in cold water outside.

Take Safety Advice

Special flags and notices may warn you of danger. Know what the signs mean and do what they tell you.

Don’t Go Alone

Children should always go with an adult, not by themselves. An adult may be able to point out dangers or help if someone gets into trouble.

Learn How to Help

You may be able to yourself and others if you know what to do in an emergency.
