Understanding water safety is extremely important when deciding to go to a water park. To make sure you are prepared here a few factors to take into consideration:
Follow the Rules
To avoid any injuries, it is important to follow the rules in the waterpark. The rules are to ensure guests’ safety. Weight and size restrictions are there to prevent any mishaps. If a person is too small for a ride, that is because there’s a possibility they will be thrown from the side. If a person is too large, they may get stuck. Explain to your children the importance of following the rules. The waterpark tends to be slippery, so it’s best to not run. These rules are simply for the wellbeing of all people.
Watch Your Children
The lifeguard’s duty is to reinforce the rules. It is a parent’s and/or guardian’s job to supervise their children in the water. Even if your child knows how to swim, it’s important to keep a close eye on them. There are a lot of other people enjoying the waterpark as well.
Shower Before and After you Have Been in the Pool
You want to clean your body before entering the waterpark to wash off any bacteria and the same when you leave the waterpark. You don’t want to take any sort of bacteria home with you after being in the water all day. You’ll want to remove any chlorine from the skin to prevent irritation. Showering before and after will eliminate contamination.
Do Not Drink the Water
Remind your children as much as possible to not drink the water. It can lead to an upset stomach or infection as there is plenty of bacteria in the water.
LifeJackets are a Necessity
