Safety code

Start your own safety code. Discuss it with adults who will be visiting a rockpool with you. In the safety code explain:

  • Why an adult is needed to keep you safe
  • Why everyone needs to wear old shoes or footwear that can’t slip off
  • What can be done to prevent sunburn
  • What can be done to prevent dehydration
  • Why it is important to avoid running or jumping
  • Why some types of animals must never be handled
  • What must be done to prevent people being washed away by large waves? 
  • Why hands should never feel for things in places where the hands cannot be seen.
