National Aquatic Workforce Report
The Australian aquatic industry continues to lead the way in recognising the skills and experience of older workers and women, with the National Aquatic Industry Workforce Report 2023 also revealing improvements in Indigenous employment rates.
The report, which was compiled by Royal Life Saving Society – Australia, presents demographic information and analysis on the key roles and make-up of the workforce across Australia and builds on research previously undertaken in 2019. With the support of the National Aquatic Industry Committee, more than 2000 workers completed the detailed survey which informed the report.
The Social, Health and Economic Value of the Australian National Aquatic Industry
The social, health and economic benefits of the aquatic industry to Australia are worth more than $9 billion.
The report, commissioned by the Royal Life Saving Society – Australia, looked at the 2 ,113 publicly accessible aquatic facilities across the country, finding almost 90 percent of Australians live within a 20-minute drive of their nearest pool.
