Health and Safety
Surf Life Saving New Zealand understands the risks
associated with the coast and is committed to providing the
best possible health and safety environment for all its activities,
including Beach Ed. Beach Ed operates with comprehensive
health and safety practices in place. Up-to-date and relevant risk
management procedures ensure a safe physical and emotional
environment for all participants. All instructors are highly
qualified and experienced Surf Lifeguards.
Risk Analysis Management Systems
We have risk analysis management systems in place for
the Beach Ed Programme. These are used to identify, assess and
manage risks associated with each of the specific activities View RAMS for Beach Ed (pdf, 137kb).
These forms are at the club and completed daily by our head
This is a system that ensures parent helpers are
actively involved in the supervision of students while on Beach Ed.
It breaks the students into groups of five which allows a parent
helper to keep an eye on a smaller number of kids. They don't have
to watch them all of the time and the kids don't always have to
stick together, its just another layer of supervision we use
throughout the Beach Ed day. The supervision form is attached to
your confirmation email.
