Drowning Prevention

Partnering with the aquatics industry, Royal Life Saving works to ensure the highest standards of safety at aquatic facilities and swimming pools across Australia. Some of our programs and resources include: 

5 Star Aquatic Facilities

5 Star Water Safety swimming pools commit to an annual Aquatic Facility Safety Assessment undertaken by Royal Life Saving and have been deemed compliant against 40 pre-determined aquatic safety criteria.

Keep Watch @ Public Pools

With lack of direct supervision by a parent or carer believed to be a contributing factor in 70% of all drowning deaths at public pools,the Keep Watch @ Public Pools program aims to eliminate all drowning deaths and reduce the number of near drowning incidents at these facilities.
