However, the working conditions of lifeguards who are responsible for safety in swimming pools, and the way they are operated fall short of our expectation. Most lifeguards in swimming pools are temporary or part-time workers. Therefore, to improve this current situation, the systems to guarantee enough payment and employment stability are needed. This research aims at presenting alternative methods to solve these problems mentioned above by analyzing the current working conditions of lifeguards of swimming pools and current policies about swimming pool workers. For this research, ten respondents were selected, who currently work for indoor swimming pools as life guards and they gave sincere answers on their working conditions and operation policies.
