Hot Fun In The Summer Time! Free Webinar

Summer is here!—which means that municipalities need to begin preparing their pools and aquatic facilities for kids and families who will soon be trying to escape the heat. While swimming pools can be relaxing, great exercise, and a lot of fun, they can also cause a significant amount of trouble if not cared for properly. Performing routine inspections of your aquatic facilities can help keep your citizens safe and decrease your city’s potential for claims.
Participate in this live webinar to:
  • Learn about the rules and regulations as enforced by the Minnesota Department of Health – Minnesota Pool Code
  • Discover the primary areas of liability with public pools and aquatic facilities (including slips/falls, drowning, and electrocution)
  • Find out about some common pool and aquatic facility exposures, including: unprotected drains, poorly installed/maintained electrical equipment, inadequate warnings, lack of fencing, lack of emergency equipment, slippery surfaces, and improper design
  • Learn about exposure controls and how to protect your city from pool-related claims
  • Understand the importance of inspections and receive a safety checklist to ensure you have everything in place
  • Get your questions answered. (Submit questions to lmcwebinar@lmc.org.)
