Snorkel Safety Study

Snorkel Safety Study

The HTA contracted with the Hawaiian Lifeguard Association to conduct a snorkel safety study. This two-year study was designed to assess the causes and risk factors in snorkel-related fatalities and near fatal drownings. The Hawaiian Lifeguard Association (HLA) collected and analyzed data, conducted scientific research, conducted surveys and interviews, and consulted with experts in the appropriate fields. The State of Hawai‘i Department of Health and the City and County of Honolulu lifeguards collaborated on the study as well. A final report was received and is available by clicking on this link: Snorkel Safety Study
