Clarion Safety Systems is a proud water safety partner of the Shallow Water Blackout Prevention (SWBP) group, helping in its mission to prevent senseless deaths from underwater blackout through awareness and education. We both understand that education and safety signage work hand in hand to save lives.
An important safety step advocated by SWBP is posting Clarion’s “No Long Breath Holding” signs at pool-side. These innovative signs – which are an integral part of Clarion’s pool safety sign system – explain the hazard of underwater breath holding and how to avoid it, using a standards-based graphical symbol to convey the message to all age groups and across language barriers. Clarion’s “No Long Breath Holding” signs, shown below, are intended to work together to explain the dangers of shallow water blackout and then to reinforce the message. In addition to these stand-alone signs, the “No Long Breath Holding” message can be incorporated into multi-hazard signs and multi-lingual signs.
