Royal Life Saving staff complete important training

25 August 2017

There were some strange looking people hanging around at Royal Life Saving Society WA headquarters this week, as a number of our staff completed self-contained breathing apparatus re-certification training.A Royal Life Saving staff member wearing an SCBA mask

With chlorine gas used for many pools across WA, it’s important for those working around these substances to have the skills and knowledge to use breathing apparatus that assist them in staying safe.

Those taking part in the training this week included our workforce solutions staff, safety and risk staff and new Pool Managers who will be taking up positions at our remote aboriginal swimming pools in the coming weeks.

Royal Life Saving Society WA is determined to ensure its staff have access to professional development sessions such as these, which allow them to maintain their industry skills, and understand and comply with Australian Standards when it comes to safety using breathing apparatus.

Our staff complete this training on an annual basis as is required in the industry for those working with chlorine gas, with training provided by Kris Trewhella from Priority 1.

Those working in the aquatic industry who need to update their skills can contact the Royal Life Saving Society Workforce Solutions department on 9383 8200.
