Diving injuries rank fourth behind automobile accidents, falls and gunshot wounds as the leading cause of spinal cord injuries. This handbook offers individuals, agencies and those who design, plan, engineer, sell, construct, regulate and operate swimming pools and swimming beaches with information that should enable them to perform their duties with a greater understanding and knowledge of the problem of safety as it relates to diving. It includes the law, standards and regulations that govern the design and operation of swimming pools. It also covers the cost of medical and attendant care for spinal cord injury victims, and discusses the progress for a cure of paralysis from spinal cord injuries.
