    Tips to avoid injury while walking around a swimming pool


    For many people a holiday is not a holiday without a swimming pool to swim in and sunbathe around. However, a swimming pool can be a dangerous place so you need to know how to avoid any travel injuries whilst walking around it.

    What types of travel injuries can be sustained around the pool?

    There are several different types of travel accidents that can happen around the swimming pool. The most common are slips, trips and falls. Around the edge of the pool is often a very slippery as water is splashed over the side and wet feet leave puddles of prints. This means that that if you are not careful a trip or fall travel accident can occur. If you do fall then you could end up in the pool which could mean you may suffer much worse than a simple trip injury.

    Other travel injuries that can occur round the pool include infections such as verrucas and fungal. These can be caught by having an open wound and walking in the same area or going in the same water as someone who is currently suffering with these infections.

    How to prevent a travel accident on holiday

    The main thing to remember to help prevent sustaining a travel injury around the pool is to be very careful. When you are walking around avoid any particularly wet areas and make sure you never run near the pool to avoid sustaining a nasty travel injuries.

    As well as this, to help prevent the spread of infections, if you have a verruca or anything else contagious on your feet you can buy special socks to wear when walking around the swimming pool.
