Pool activities operate under the OSH standards of the hosting pool. It is a requirement that a life-guard from the hosting pool is present to ensure the OSH standards of the pool are followed by all participants and observed on water activities.
To support the pool guidelines:
- No seal launches – as this can damage tiles
- Brief participants about monitoring one another and that their gear does not interfere with access around the pool. Watch out for boats and paddles causing damage to people or the pool.
- Check that new participants can first fit a spray deck correctly and perform a wet exit or have them complete this drill assisted by a mentor.
- Report any incidents to the safety officer.
