Australian Water Safety Strategies

Towards a nation free from drowning

Since 1998 the Australian Water Safety Council (AWSC) has produced National Water Safety Plans and Strategies to guide the activities of the Australian water safety community and work towards a reduction of drowning deaths. The most recent publication, The Australian Water Safety Strategy 2008-15 builds on previous documents and continues to aim for a 50% reduction in drowning by the year 2020.
