Safety Cover

Not only do we provide Safety Cover at numerous events through the year, we also work in close partnership with event organisers to develop and produce waterborne Risk Assessments as well as Normal Operation Procedures and Emergency Action Plans, to cover the water side of the event e.g. swimmers and safety cover personnel.

We also co-ordinate the laying of buoys for swim courses and the start /finish funnels. We have a number of large buoys, weights and anchors to achieve this.

If we cannot produce the numbers of safety personnel and equipment required, then we can draw upon our neighbouring clubs within the PBCLSA (Poole, Bournemouth and Christchurch  Life Saving Association) to allow the minimum number required according to the R/A.
