The RLSS UK Guidance for Swimming Pool Operators Managing Lifeguards during COVID-19 has been created to support swimming operators who employ lifeguards to provide supervision of swimming pool(s).

RLSS UK suggests that the guidance is considered when reviewing risk assessment, 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. It is important that you ensure you have the most recent version, which can be found here.

Should you have any questions please do not hesitate to contact us by e-mail [email protected] or 0300 3230 096.
