KEEP WATCH AT PUBLIC POOLS

An effective water safety program with results

Drowning is the leading cause of preventable death in children under the age of five in Australia. 

More than half of the fatalities in this age group occur in home swimming pools. For every toddler drowning death another ten children are admitted to hospital as a result of non-fatal drowning, many of whom will suffer lifelong consequences.

With lack of direct supervision by a parent or carer believed to be a contributing factor in 70% of all drowning deaths at public pools, the Keep Watch at Public Pools program aims to eliminate all drowning deaths and reduce the number of near drowning incidents at these facilities.

The program targets parents and carers of children to help them understand their responsibilities and the dangers of leaving their children unattended at the pool.

How our Program Works

The Royal Life Saving Society – Australia’s Keep Watch at Public Pools program aims to:

  • Promote the importance of appropriate levels of supervision within aquatic facilities to the community

  • Provide partners with support mechanisms to promote Keep Watch at Public Pools

  • Research and communicate information pertaining to the appropriate level of supervision within aquatic facilities

  • Promote Keep Watch to the public

 

As a Keep Watch at Public Pools partner, you will have access to a range of promotional and professional development resources to highlight the very specific role that lifeguards have in keeping the general public safe while educating people that active supervision of children when visiting public pools remains the responsibility of parents and carers.
