NDPA Seal of Safer Pools – A Partnership to Promote Water Safety

By Erin Earley | 3rd Mar 2013

Here at Clarion, our passion is keeping people safe from harm. And that means that our Clarion Pool Safety Signsafety signs, labels, and markings can be found in a variety of environments, from offices to construction sites to beaches and pools. When it comes to aquatic safety in particular, effective visual safety communication is critical in allowing people to take the necessary precautions to keep themselves and their families safe as they enjoy their water activities.

On that note, we're pleased to share news on a new effort to better protect people and reduce risk at pools: Clarion has collaborated with the National Drowning Prevention Alliance (NDPA) to promote water safety through the Seal of Safer Pool Practices program. The Seal of Safer Pool Practices provides best practice safety guidelines for class "C" aquatic facilities – hotels, motels, apartments, condominiums, property owner associations, and multi-family owned pools. As part of its program, which includes a guideline regarding the necessity of posting best practice pool safety signs to effectively communicate water hazards and risks, the NDPA recommends Clarion's pool safety sign system of comprehension tested signs. To meet facilities' pool specifications, two sign system options are available to choose from, with one for guarded pools and another for unguarded pools. The overall goal: creating a safer experience for patrons and to help reduce the risk of water-related incidents, as well as resulting costs to facilities.

The NDPA will debut its Seal of Safer Pools Practices program at its Annual Symposium, March 13 – 15, 2013 in Fort Lauderdale, Florida. Interested in learning more about the program and how it can help to reduce risk and protect patrons at your facility? Contact Clarion today. And, if you're attending the NDPA Symposium, be sure to visit with Clarion representatives who will be onsite to discuss water safety, effective safety signage, and the NDPA's safety signage recommendation for class C pools.
