Watch Around Water

  • Watch Around Water was initiated in 2004 following a number of drowning deaths involving young children at major public pools in WA to address the issue of parental supervision at public pools.
  • Watch Around Water is an education and awareness program run throughout public pools in WA that promote safe parental supervision of young children.
  • Children are at the greatest risk of drowning and near-drowning and need supervision.
  • The program assists lifeguards and other aquatic staff to provide a safe venue for the community.
  • ‘Watch Around Water is the single most important program in terms of safety for our industry’ – Jeff Fondacaro (LIWA Aquatics President).
  • Your Child Your Focus – Parents Supervise and Lifeguards Save Lives.
