Pool Safely

The Live Like Benjo Foundation is proud to have been selected by Pool Safely to be selected as a Partner and joining its long list of other prestigious partners throughout the US. Pool Safely partners are national water safety organizations, family foundations, pool and spa manufacturers and everyone in between. They share the critical drowning prevention message that simple steps save lives by having a visible role in campaign initiatives, such as events and announcements.

To improve pool and spa safety, the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) launched Pool Safely: Simple Steps to Save Lives, a national public education campaign to reduce childhood drownings, submersion injuries and entrapments.

The campaign is a call-to-action for consumers and industry to adopt proven water safety steps and join a national conversation about pool and spa safety by sharing best practices and other life-saving information.

Pool Safely carries out the provisions of the Virginia Graeme Baker Pool & Spa Safety Act (P&SS Act), federal legislation mandating new requirements for public pools and spas, including a public information campaign.
