Surf Life Saving New Zealand provides high quality Event Water
Safety services for public events in, on or near water.
Our service includes:
- Advice to event organisers
- Event safety planning
- Provision of trained lifeguards
Our guiding principle: Open Water Safety Guidelines
We've developed these in response to the increasing popularity
of water based events like ocean swimming, triathlons and the
growing demand from event organisers/race directors for SLSNZ
members to provide lifeguarding services at events.
The guidelines ensure that event participants are safe and event
organisers/race directors are confident of using best practice
Our service: Implementing the Guidelines
Part of the Event Water Safety service we provide includes
developing and finalising event safety plans and agreements with
event organisers/race directors. Our trained Water Safety
Coordinators then work directly with event organiser/race director
to ensure the water event safety plan is implemented at the
