Water Safety Advice For Your Business

Established more than 130 years ago, RLSS UK is recognised worldwide as an expert in lifeguarding and water safety. 

Every year we certify more than 60,000 regulated qualifications and non-regulated vocational training awards, and more lifeguards qualify with us than with any other awarding body! Why? Because we're at the cutting edge of water safety, lifesaving, lifeguarding, and life support skills. We rigorously review our qualifications, and we sit on many industry panels to evolve and develop national safety standards. We are also at the forefront of supporting companies to manufacture and distribute innovative and compliant lifesaving equipment, and the RLSS UK Shop offers official uniform and training, First Aid, and safety equipment for the leisure industry.

We work with an impressive list of national leisure providers and partners - ranging from hotels, spas, and competition pools to leisure centres and aqua parks. We develop bespoke training services for many sectors - including the cruise and holiday industries and are experts at delivering clear and practical consultancy support to any business or individual with liabilities to visitors and staff around water, including events, construction, and outdoor recreation.

Our trusted brand gives peace of mind to businesses and the millions of customers who access the facilities we support.

Following our full risk assessment of open water spaces in the Bradford area, carried out on behalf of Bradford Council, today we submit our final report, making recommendations for physical and campaign water safety measures.

Last month at Westminster Hall, as part of a debate on e-petition 575967 relating to throwline stations around open bodies of water, the government was asked to make risk assessments of all bodies of water (natural and man-made) mandatory, as well as water safety equipment and warning signage.

We are immensely proud to have received mention in the associated research briefing. As a Charity, our primary interest lies in water safety and making water safer environments with any profits from paid-for services, including our water safety consultancy, funding our ongoing campaign work to educate more people on how to enjoy water safely.

If you'd like to talk through the water safety risks on or around your land and your accountabilities, get in touch; we can help.
