    Rules at the local lido

    Although some rules at the local lido may vary slightly between different areas, it can probably be safely said that most lidos have a set of rules including the following:

    • Children under the age of eight must be accompanied by responsible adults: minimum age 16, one adult for every two children
    • No running around the pool
    • No diving, except in specifically designated areas; some lidos do not permit diving at all
    • No balls or inflatables during busy periods
    • No alcohol
    • No glass containers
    • Instructions by lifeguards must be followed

    Rules at the local lido typically also include a reminder that visitors must wear appropriate swimwear at all times and that photography must be authorised and supervised by a member of staff.

    Importance of rules at the local lido

    Lido owners have a responsibility to protect the health and safety of their patrons. This includes taking all necessary steps to prevent drowning and near-drowning accidents, slips, trips and falls, and so on.

    Rules at the local lido like those above are designed to help prevent pool accidents and, as is the case with the rules concerning swimwear and photography, ensure children are kept safe. Following these rules is imperative in order to help prevent personal injuries.

    Lido incidents

    In spite of these rules, lido accidents can and will happen occasionally for a variety of reasons. Sometimes members of the public are responsible, while on other occasions, lido staff may make a mistake or neglect to perform a duty, such as clearing up a spill in changing rooms, for example.
