As a Swim School, you have a legal obligation to customers and staff to ensure their safety. Well-trained staff, who are prepared to respond to an emergency, are Emergency Risk Ready.
ERR, in association with WWSS, have developed a series of video-based emergency procedure modules, tailored to the aquatics industry, for staff to complete on induction, and ongoing to refresh training.
Swim Schools Obligations:
- All staff must complete induction and ongoing refresher training on emergency procedures.
- Swim Schools have an obligation to ensure all staff have knowledge on how to respond when an emergency arises.
- A good workplace health and safety culture leads to better productivity and improved morale.
Emergency Risk Ready (ERR) – Who We Are
ERR have partnered with WWSS to share the ERR training resources to the aquatics industry.
Ross Smith (Emergency Risk Consultant) and Lesley Rudd (Swim School Owner) initially developed emergency procedure manuals and innovative emergency staff induction training for Lesley’s swim school. They then decided to bring their expertise together to develop the Emergency Risk Ready induction training package and make it available for all Swim Schools.
