Water Safety Webinar

This webinar is aimed at anyone involved in water safety in both coastal and inland locations.

The Covid-19 pandemic impacted water safety with a changing and challenging landscape of what, how and when the right advice was communicated to the public so they can stay safe in and around water. This webinar will review some of the lessons learned from 2020 and how we can use this experience to help in readiness for when government guidance allows restrictions to ease as we approach summer 2021 and no doubt a busy year for staycations in the UK.

Our agenda features a range of speakers with sessions on leisure and wellbeing, impacts and learnings from last year as well as water safety information. It will include some of the collaborative work and guidance this has produced which can will be valuable for supporting your plans in 2021.
