SRA 311 Fall 2010 IV. Threat Statement Through the course of our research, we have uncovered three potential liability threat sources. First, not having a lifeguard on duty, second, Pool Chemical Tech, and third, the pool designer, all of which pose a significant liability risk. Not having a lifeguard on duty increases the likelihood of a patron drowning and in turn increases the potential liability for the hotel (Branche). A lifeguard also acts as an authority to enforce rules and prevent unsafe behavior, as well as limit access to the pool to patrons of the hotel. If a person would drown, it would hurt the hotel’s reputation. The pool chemical technician is responsible for making sure the chemicals that keep the pool water clean are administered correctly (The Pennsylvania State University). An uncertified chemical technician may not treat the water well enough to prevent water borne pathogens. Conversely, an uncertified chemical technician my put too many or the incorrect combination and cause swimmers to be injured by the chemicals The pool design also has a significant impact on pool safety in that if the slope from the shallow end to the deep end is unsafe or the building materials used were not specified properly (APSP). Further, an error in the specifications of the pool size could cause an unsafe environment if the size puts the pool too close to sidewalks where people can accidentally fall in and drown. Threat- Source Motivation Threat Actions No Lifeguard Unwillingness to pay for Not helping victims Cut in pay Lack of responsibility during shifts Disregard for guest safety Allowing non-guests into the pool Allowing partying or other unruly behavior at the pool Uncertified Chemical Technician Induce health issues Not putting enough chemicals in to treat water Discontent for management Putting too many chemicals in to treat water Curiosity Keeping water wrong temperature Blackmail Abusing the chemicals/costing company money Unqualified Pool Designer Unfamiliar with pool design Poor construction materials could lead to faulty pool Non-specific about materials Pool could have design that is unwise with water Pool designer’s ego Slope from shallow to deep end unsafe for children Other building schedules to do Dimensions of pool could be incorrect

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
