Providing lifeguard services is a complex operation with specific industry standards, across the public safety, training, and development and medical research sectors. The Australian Lifeguard Service has been a leader in the aquatic safety and lifeguard services industry for over 30 years. We set international standards through quality nationally accredited training, highly skilled staff and stringent standard operating practices.
We have a strong link to Surf Life Saving Australia and a long and proud history in lifeguard service provision and public safety.
Expertise – We incorporate strict operational procedures and controls including detailed management plans which meet agreed performance standards. We have access to comprehensive data on all Australian beaches, allowing us to better analyse demand and recommend appropriate service levels.
Risk reduction – ALS holds comprehensive public liability, errors and omissions policies covering lifeguard operations to significantly reduce the risk to our clients.
Partnership – We work to become a full partner in beach safety with you – from integration with your own quality assurance program, to regular meetings to review performance and plan improvements.
Value adding – From a national resource pool we can add value to your existing or potential operations while still allowing the community to recognise the local government or land manager’s commitment to public safety.
Value for money/cost – The ALS avoids duplication of assets by providing and sharing resources with volunteer services so that we can reduce costs while maximising benefits to the community.
Administration – We can reduce your administration burden by taking on the administration of agreed items relating to procurement, leasing, maintenance and staff management, including all industrial relations issues.
Integration – We deliver seamless and effective cross service co-operation with all emergency services including surf lifesaving support operations groups and the nationwide volunteer club movement.
