NT Water Safety Strategy 2012-2016
The Northern Territory Water Safety Strategy 2012‐2016 builds upon previous Water Safety Plans and Strategies. The strategy aligns to the Australian Water Safety Strategy and is developed and reviewed by the NT Water Safety Advisory Council (NTWSAC).
The NTWSAC was established in 2002 as part of the Northern Territory Government’s 5 point Water Safety Plan. One of the major requirements of the Council was to ‘develop and implement a Northern Territory Water Safety Plan that focuses on water safety education, research and data collection and standards’.
This strategy is designed to build on work that has already been done, while continuing to minimise the rate of drowning, near drowning and water related injuries in the Northern Territory.
