Surf Life Saving Member Protection Policy
Surf Life Saving Australia Limited (SLSA), including subsidiary companies and affiliated clubs, branches and states, is committed to the health, safety and wellbeing of all its members and is dedicated to providing a safe environment for those participating in surf life saving activities.
Surf lifesavers are nurtured in an environment that values safety, trust, respect, caring and responsibility. This environment encourages acceptance, confidence and risk taking. For surf lifesavers to venture into challenging waters in times of distress, they need to have faith and trust in themselves and in the people around them. The motivation for surf lifesavers to give freely of their time is to be found in surf life saving environments that value;
- safety and support
- caring and camaraderie
- trust and teamwork
- respect and responsibility
As part of the surf lifesaving community, each individual makes a commitment to actively encourage behaviours that promote a supportive and nurturing environment and contribute to our core purpose: “To save lies, create great Australians and build better communities”.
The policy attachments describe the practical steps we will take to eliminate discrimination, harassment, child abuse and other forms of inappropriate behaviour from our activities. As part of this commitment, SLSA will take disciplinary action against any person or organisation bound by this policy if they breach it.
