Everyday Lifesavers

Let us know if you have any Everyday Lifesavers in your networks or facilities that you work at and ensure that they are properly recognised for their actions.

Everyday Lifesavers are those people whose actions save the life of another. This could include the rescue of a person with a pre-existing medical condition/injury or stopping somebody from getting themselves into a dangerous situation before they require rescuing.

We are proud to support the Everyday Lifesaver campaign within the aquatics industry and are always excited to hear how facility staff and patrons are making a real difference in the community.

Industry Research

The SwimSafe trial has finished at Ascot Vale Leisure Centre, Eltham Leisure Centre, Kew Recreation Centre and Collingwood Leisure Centre and is currently being evaluated formally by researchers for its effectiveness at engaging with at-risk swimmers including: those with pre-existing medical conditions, people with disabilities, at-risk CALD community and / or older Australians who are entering aquatic environments for the first time as part of their health routine.

Preliminary findings are showing very positive results. It is also intended that SwimSafe will assist facility owners / operators in satisfying key elements of the new GSPO Supervision Guidelines (SV4, SV6, SV7, SV15, SV16 and SV17).
