Royal Life Saving NSW – Coordinating lifeguard supervision workshop

The effectiveness of supervision by lifeguards is dependent on a functioning system of policies, procedures and practise that inform everything from the number of lifeguards present, to where they stand, how they move, their areas of responsibility and how they interact with patrons. The ever-changing nature of the aquatic environment requires supervision systems to be carefully considered and address those risks present in order to minimise the risk of drowning and injury.

Participants will follow a formal risk management process to develop policies and procedures for the deployment and coordination of lifeguards in an aquatic facility. This workshop uses practical activities and scenarios to prepare a risk-based supervision plan for an aquatic facility.
