Type of Lawsuits
:

: Several broken chairs in the area surrounding the pool
Possible Injuries
: Bruises, sprains, broken bones, concussions
Type of Lawsuits
:
Negligence - Failure to Provide Safe Facilities

The Emirates Academy Pool Risk Assessment

`
Hazard 1: Broken Tiles
Replace broken tiles when needed

Cleaning and maintenance of tiles to avoid breakage due to debris and e.g. sand
Hazard 2: Lights
Implement motion-sensor lights (will lit when there is movement in the swimming pool area)

Implement built-in lights in the swimming pool (if possible)

Build fence around the pool if the above options cannot be done
Hazard 3: Broken Chairs
Remove broken chairs

If insufficient number of chairs, new chairs should be added
Hazard 4: Pool Grating
Change grating
More withstanding material
Less slippery
Hazard 1: Broken Tiles
1. Procedures for property inspections to be revised - inspections to be done more frequently (e.g. once every 2 weeks)

2. Repairs must be conducted as soon as any problem is recorded (maximum 3 days)
Hazard 2: Lights
1. Sensors must be applied to the whole swimming pool area - must record movement from "every corner" (four sensors should be sufficient)

2.Lights in the swimming pool itself (will make the pool and the water more visible) should be lit at all times after sunset.
Hazard 3: Broken Chairs
1. All broken chairs to be removed from the pool area

2. Increase frequency of property inspections to identify broken chairs in the future - take immediate action if additional chairs break.

3. Ensure sufficient number of chairs - acquire more if needed
Hazard 4: Pool Grating
1. Search for appropriate alternatives

2. Purchase new grating that meets the requirements

3. Change grating

Severity
: 4-5
In worst case it might cause amputation or death


Occurrence
: 2
Resent repairs will decrease chances of occurrence
Due to the nature of a swimming pool, there is always a chance for such accident to happen

Hazard 1: Broken Tiles

Severity
: 4
Tripping, spraining or breaking parts of the body, and in a few cases in might cause death

Occurrence
: 2
The chances for such accident to happen is relatively small, as most people living in the academy are aware of the location of the swimming pool
Hazard 2: Lights
Hazard 3: Broken Chairs
Severity
: 4
It is not expected that a chair is broken when sitting on it - thus someone might fall. This could cause severe consequences like a concussion, or spraining/breaking bones

Occurrence
: 2
As some of the chairs are visibly broken, the chance of accidents are quite small


Severity
: 3
Sprained or broken bones

Occurrence
: 4
Due to the high frequency of people passing by the pool in a given day, the chance of occurrence is quite high


Hazard 4:
Pool Grating
