What is Risk Management & Assessment?
Risk Assessment is an essential component of risk management and a requirement of our duties as lifeguards, SLSNZ members and employees.
We have actually been doing this really well between the flags, which is perhaps why nobody has drowned between the flags in 110 years.
However, investigations into incidents involving lifeguards, members and staff identify that while we do a great job of preventing harm to others, we are not very good and preventing harm to ourselves!! Why is this?
More than 95% of lifeguard, member and staff injuries happen outside of the flags. Some injuries are serious and life changing. This practical training session will enable you to better understand what it is that we do well between the flags, and learn how to apply these skills outside of the flags, so that all our lifeguards, members and staff can return home each day to their families and friends, safe and well.
If you currently manage or lead others in routine or planned club activities or expect to manage or lead others in your club in the next season or two, then this course is highly recommended for you.
