Many Swimming Pools Do Not Observe Safety Measures

Many enclosed swimming pools do not observe sufficient safety measures. The inspectorate of the Ministry of Environment found severe lapses in the storage and use of chemicals at 28 of the 72 pools checked. The inspection was carried out after repeated incidents of escaping chlorine gas in swimming pools which affected the swimmers. In three pools the emergency exits were found to be blocked.
