Get in touch today if you’re been injured because a lifeguard at a wave pool was negligent. There’s no doubt that wave pools can be very exciting. Unfortunately, they can also be somewhat dangerous. In wave pools, giant mechanical waves are created and they can pose big risks, particularly for inexperienced swimmers. Because wave pools can attract big crowds, it can be hard for lifeguards to keep an eye on everybody using them to keep them safe. This means it’s vital that swimming pool managers employ a sufficient number of lifeguards.
Lifeguard at a wave pool – Duty of care
A lifeguard at a wave pool will be tasked with removing objects from swimming pools that might cause a hazard. Floats and other objects are dangerous when waves are being generated. Visibility can be a big problem when waves are created, not just for lifeguards but for swimmers too. Becoming a lifeguard can be a very rewarding career choice. The ability to keep people safe in water is a very valuable skill to have. The best swimming pool lifeguards are physically fit, responsible and alert. They have no problem with issuing warnings and telling people to exit pools in they are engaging in dangerous activities. Lifeguards require excellent teamwork skills and can work together to keep wave pools safer and prevent accidents and injuries.
