RLSS UK has worked with experts to create guidance to support Beach Operators managing lifeguards using COVID-19. We are committed to supporting the industry during COVID-19. Using our experience, expert Advisors, Partners and information from various government groups and other organisations, we have created guidance to provide support.

RLSS UK suggests that the guidance is considered when reviewing risk assessments, deciding on control measures to reduce risk and when developing revised operating procedures. The measures suggested in the guidance may not be appropriate for all venues and/or situations and should be considered as part of the wider plan to protect staff, customers and third parties. The guidance is not exhaustive and further guidance may be sort from other organisations.

Please note this is an ever changing environment and guidance will be updated regularly following changes from the government. You must ensure you have the most recent version, which can be found here.

Following the changes to the restrictions in England from 19/07/2021, Operators managing lifeguards or swimming teachers will need to review relevant risk assessments created to mitigate the risk of spreading or contracting COVID-19, whilst they undertake their role. Any changes made, must be in line with the latest restrictions/ Government guidelines.
