    Safety checks to make before jumping in your gym swimming pool


    There are few activities more refreshing in life than a dip in a swimming pool. Swimming is one of the most efficient exercises for burning calories, whether it’s at a gym swimming pool or in the sea. Like all physical exercise, however, you need to pay attention to a few important safety rules to prevent any slips or falls.

    Observe the water depth

    Look for any notices displaying the water depth of the pool. If you jump in water that is too shallow, you could sustain an injury resulting from a fall, slip or trip. If you are uncomfortable diving in water that is deeper than your height, jump at a shallower section of the pool instead. If you are unsure, speak to a lifeguard or another member of pool staff.

    Look out for any safety notices

    Gym swimming pools will usually have areas designated for jumping and diving, which will often be in the deepest sections of the pool (i.e. more than two metres deep). When there is a clear notice displaying the phrase ‘no diving’, you must respect this rule, because it is there to protect you from accidents such as a fall or trip, just as workplace health and safety regulations exist to protect people from accidents at work and having to make a work accident claim.

    Have you suffered an accident that wasn’t your fault?

    If you suffer an injury by jumping in shallow water in a pool where an incorrect pool depth is displayed, you could be eligible to claim compensation. If you experience an injury from any broken tiles or poor filtration systems, you may also be able to make a claim. To check if you’re eligible, use our 30-second test or contact us by phone. Even if we are unable to approve your claim, our 100 per cent no win no fee* policy means you won’t be charged any fees.
