Water Safety

Each summer Scottish Water runs a water safety campaign to encourage everyone to stay safe around water. Reservoirs, rivers and lochs can be popular places for visitors and we want everyone to enjoy them safely.

A big part of our social media campaign this year has focused on educating people about the risks of swimming and diving into reservoirs –  there are lots of hidden dangers like underwater machinery, strong currents and deep, cold water. This harrowing film from our friends at Welsh Water shows why it’s not a good idea to go swimming at reservoirs https://youtu.be/upeL9yogTAg

Another great film from RNLI explains how you should FLOAT TO LIVE to overcome cold water shock  http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3OBCFEEZe1U

Lastly, pupils can find our water safety advice on our website at http://www.scottishwater.co.uk/takecare
