Water safety

Supervision is the key to prevent drowning.Supervision means constant watching, not occasionally glancing at your child while you read or snooze. Don't forget to supervise children near pools, rivers, beaches, nappy buckets, fish ponds, dams and bathtubs.

It takes only seconds for a child to drown.


Supervision means constant visual contact, not the occasional glance.
If you leave the pool or water area, even for a moment, take the children with you.

A swimming pool fence is not a substitute for supervision.

Display a resuscitation chart on your pool fence.

Familiarise children with water by taking them to lessons at the local pool.

Empty paddle pools when they are not in use.

Empty baths, basins, sinks and troughs immediately after use.
