In this video, Paul and Theo shows how to keep safety in the swimming pool.

Hi I'm Paul. This is Theo from swimminglessonslondon.co.uk.

We're going to give you a few tips on swimming today. You're more than welcome to contact us for any more information or to book a session.

Thank you. Alright, this is a guide to swimming pool safety. Things to bear in mind when you're using a swimming pool for coaching or just for leisurely use is to make sure that the floors are clear of obstructions, you don't want anything on the floor that you can slip over and you've also got to bear in mind that its always going to be wet around pool sides, so it's going to be slippery as well, so you don't want to be running around or have any of your clients quickly running or walking to any spots at all.

And I'm thinking that you need to think about quite seriously before you enter a pool is the depth about the depth all around the pool because some pools quite often is that you'll find that one depth isn't the same as the other side of the pool. Varied depth pool; shallow at one end, deep at the other. This pool that we use here at London Bridge is all one depth, so it's perfect for teaching but at the same time it's something that you've got to be aware of before you start.

One more thing to bear in mind before you start swimming or teaching someone on the pool is to take note where the fire exit is. And also any equipment that you might have, life saving equipment such as a throw buoy or a rope that we have over here which can be utilized in life saving. This could come very handy.

The best thing is be aware of where your clients are and be aware like I said before, of the dangers zones, are the deep area, slippery area on the pool side, any obstacles that might be in your way. The safe way to enter the pool is to go up to the sides carefully and just sit on the side with your feet on the water. Then, put both hands on one side of the body, and twist around your body, and lower your feet down calmly to touch the bottom.

So if you have availability of stairs, use the stairs to get in and out. That was a guide to swimming pool safety.
