When visiting a public health spa your main aim is to have a relaxing time, forget all your worries and look after number one. It is the perfect opportunity to make the most of the peace and quiet in a place that is seemingly so tranquil that is lacks in any risks.
Similarly when you are staying at a hotel with your family you are at least trying to enjoy a family holiday. However, whenever children are in the mix it becomes a lot harder to relax and concentrating on keeping them accident-free in areas where there are potential hazards becomes your number one focus.
Slipping hazards at a public health spa or hotel swimming pool
The possibility of slipping over around a swimming pool is very likely due to the amount of water and the tiles that usually border the pool itself. Granted it becomes a more likely occurrence when you put excited children in the equation.
There are also slipping risks at public health spas from where spillages have occurred or where cleaning is in process. If you have an accident that is not your fault at a public health spa, Accident Advice Helpline’s legal team want to hear from you.
Risk of falling at a public health spa or hotel swimming pool
It is almost less worrying watching your children in the water at a hotel pool, rather than see them walking around it. The water on the pool edges is very hazardous and can cause a nasty fall into the pool. These falls can be very dangerous and can be the source of bad head injuries and or concussion.
In a public health spa there is also the danger of falling and injuries. If items or deliveries are left in the way of the public these can cause serious falls and wounds.
As an adult you are aware of the slips, trips and fall risks in places such as spas or around swimming pools, however, it is very important to make children aware of these risks as well to avoid potentially harming themselves and those around them.
