Emergency & Incident Management

Emergency Management 

SLSNZ has identified a range of emergencies that may arise and effect SLSNZ workers, club workers, visitors and/or members of the public. Critical information should be communicated to and understood by staff and volunteer workers.  The National Standard Operating Procedures (NSOPs) outline the required emergency procedures for SLSNZ and Clubs for the following emergencies:

  • Fire 
  • Earthquake 
  • Local, Regional, and Distant Tsunami


Incident Reporting 

We all play a role in protecting the health and safety of ourselves and others.  It is vital that any health and safety incidents that happen whilst carrying out surf lifesaving work or operations are reported. Reported incidents give SLSNZ and Clubs the information and data that is necessary to improve safety systems and prevent reoccurrence.
