Be a Sun Smart Lifeguard
Splashing around at an outdoor pools is a fun summer activity for the whole family.
Outdoor pools are important sites for sun safety because people are likely to visit during the Critical Protection Period when the sun’s rays are the strongest.
And the nature of the activitiy (swimming) means that people are more likely to be wearing minimal clothing.
Reflected UVR is also a consideration at pools because the sun’s rays reflect off of surfaces around the pool like water and the concrete pool deck.
