SPASA Australia says:
"Pool & Spa Safety starts with SUPERVISION"
There is no better place than a swimming pool or spa to have fun, exercise and gather with friends and family during summer.
Teaching children how to swim and play safely in and around water is especially important, as is always having adult supervision.
The Swimming Pool & Spa Association of Australia (SPASA Australia) takes the role of swimming pool safety very seriously. That is why we have developed tips for everyone to stay safe.
