The list of signs necessary to guarantee the safety of bathers on a beach or in a swimming pool is huge. The prohibitions and indications mentioned above represent only the tip of the iceberg. For enthusiasts, some prohibitions may seem farfetched, but they exist only to guarantee the safety of all bathers. Whether it is a private beach, a public beach, a swimming pool or even a simple waterway, the bather must be aware of the dangers that threaten them. For example, it would be irresponsible to allow swimming in polluted or shark-infested waters. In the same vein, one cannot afford to let children swim alone on a very deep site. The use of swimming signs is important for both public and private use.
