“Play and swim safely”

“Brincar e nadar em segurança”

With the arrival of the holiday season, the Directorate-General for Consumers publishes its “Safe Play and Swim” brochure   with the aim of once again alerting parents and educators to the adoption of procedures and behaviors that help to reduce the risk of accidents in swimming pools and to disseminate the Portuguese standard on safety requirements for fences and access to swimming pools.

Knowing that many local accommodations, tourist apartments and private homes have a swimming pool, and also bearing in mind the accidents that occurred in these spaces, the Directorate-General for Consumers developed, in addition to the aforementioned brochure, a set of flyers in electronic format, with safety tips essentially focusing on the importance of child surveillance in preventing these accidents. These flyers, written in Portuguese and English, can be printed and disseminated by all interested parties in order to achieve the greatest possible awareness, an essential objective given the urgency of this topic.
