Check out my latest film with the RNLI it could save your life! If you get into trouble in cold water all you need to do is #FloatToLive #RespectTheWater - learn how to overcome cold water shock.

Open Water Safety Cover

To avoid any confusion, the following is a summary of the expectations of the RLSS UK for any open water activities organised by Trainers and Assessors and Survive and Save Instructors…

Safety arrangements should be capable of recovering a casualty to shore within 3 minutes of identifying anyone requiring assistance.

If the event involves any element of ‘free swimming’ then appropriate numbers of NBLQ qualified Lifeguards should be present.

If the session is structured and controlled as in programmed activity (RLSS UK assessments are classified as programmed activity) then appropriate numbers of ER-AS (Emergency Response – Activity Supervisor) holders should be present.

IF YOU ARE INTENDING RUNNING OPEN WATER (STILL OR BEACH) ACTIVITIES AND WOULD LIKE TO OBTAIN THE ER-AS QUALIFICATION, PLEASE CONTACT THE BLC URGENTLY SO THAT SUITABLE DATES CAN BE ARRANGED.
