Watch Around Water
Supervision of young children at aquatic facilities has been an issue of concern amongst the aquatics industry for many years. There is often a misconception by parents that the supervision of young children is the sole responsibility of lifeguards.
The Watch Around Water program was created by the aquatics industry and looks to raise awareness of the importance of parental supervision of young children while at public swimming pools.
It promotes the following safe supervision policies (minimum standard):
- Children under 5 years must be accompanied by an adult over 16 years of age and supervised at arm's reach at all times.
- Children under 12 years must be accompanied by an adult over 16 years and supervised at all times.
Watch Around Water is an important industry driven program that contributes significantly to ensuring the safety and reducing risk at our public swimming pools.
It provides a consistent message in line with best practice to the public about effective supervision of young children at public pools and demonstrates that the aquatics industry is organised and takes their responsibility for patron safety seriously.
