7.2i Group Safety at Water Margins
This document replaces the 2001 DfES/CCPR document Group Safety at Water Margins. It covers a number of issues not included in the original.
This guidance is about activities that take place near the water or just in it, such as: walking along a riverbank or seashore; cycling along a canal towpath; field studies near water, collecting samples from ponds and streams; beachcombing; paddling or walking in shallow water. It does not cover swimming, surfing or watersports activities such as the use of water-going craft.
If you are planning for participants to enter the water, you should also read OEAP National Guidance document 7o Natural Water Bathing.
