    What to do if you’re hurt in a swimming pool


    What to do if you’re hurt in a swimming pool

    Swimming is recognised as a great way to help you keep fit. You can enjoy a gentle swim or try and accomplish several laps using the swimming stroke of your choice. Either way, you can certainly be in a good position to improve your health if you go regularly.

    Imagine, then, how you would feel if you were hurt in a swimming pool. Events like these are rare indeed, but they can occasionally happen. For example, you might catch your foot on a broken tile in the pool itself. This could cause a nasty cut and you may suffer an infection. You might also slip on the tiles around the pool if they have not been cleaned sufficiently. If bacteria start to grow, they can make an area very slippery indeed.

    How likely is it that you would be hurt in a swimming pool?

    Events such as these are very uncommon. You can potentially have an accident in any public place, but since there are strict health and safety laws in place that relate to all public buildings and venues, you should essentially be protected by them.

    However, as we all know, there is always a chance something could happen that might potentially lead to us suffering some kind of injury. If this should happen, you could end up being hurt in some way – and it could affect your life for at least a short time. A nasty cut on your foot, as in the example above, would prevent you from swimming and it could be difficult to walk on as well.
