February 23, 2007, Newsletter Issue #28: Mesh Fencing Can Help Protect Against Accidental Electrocution

Tip of the Week

Swimming pool safety does not just mean having safeguards in place against drowning. Other types of accidents can occur around the swimming pool.

Mesh baby fencing can be a critical layer of protection against accidental electrocution. The combination of water and outdoor electrical outlets can create dangerous conditions. If your child is in the swimming pool unattended, they could accidentally touch one of the outlets or try to plug something in and end up with serious injuries.

These types of accidents can happen either in an above-ground pool, where electrical outlets can be found around the pool filter area or around an in-ground swimming pool area that borders towards the home area.

Mesh baby fencing can be constructed to make sure they never get an opportunity enter the area alone. Mesh baby fencing should extend around the entire perimeter of the swimming pool, including safeguarding against areas around the home. The gate to the pool should be locked at all times.

These measures can help prevent an accident from occurring in your swimming pool area.
