RLSS UK IQL Awards 2013 – The Finalists
Mark Foster, one of Britain’s greatest ever swimmers, joined the RLSS UK at the inaugural RLSS UK and IQL UK awards ceremony held in June.

Taking place at the prestigious Cranage Hall in Cheshire, and attended by representatives from the organisation, stakeholders from the leisure sector and shortlisted finalists, the awards saw the former Olympian present awards for Lifeguard of the Year, Trainer Assessor of the Year and Approved Training Centre of the Year.

In a year when the RLSS UK and IQL UK are also celebrating the fact that there were no pool drownings recorded during 2012, each of the finalists highlighted an outstanding commitment to pool safety though their achievements.

Peter Moyes, newly appointed President of RLSS UK, said: “The inaugural awards ceremony was a huge success, and it is fantastic that we are able to recognise the outstanding pool lifeguards, trainers and partners for the vital role they play in pool safety within the leisure industry.

“We hope that the awards will continue to grow in stature, and that the awards, not only become further sought after within the industry, but support the RLSS UK and IQL UK in driving excellence within our community.”

Approved Training Centre of the Year
This award was aimed at awarding an Approved Training Centre that has shown an exceptional commitment to pool lifeguard training and water safety awareness. The award recognised a clear dedication to the provision of pool lifeguard training, career development and promotion of wider water safety messages.

The Approved Training Centre of the Year Award was sponsored by medical equipment manufacturer, Laerdal, and the winner received a HeartStartFRx Defibrillator. The award supports the efforts of Laerdal and the RLSS UK in encouraging all leisure centres to have an AED on-site in order to improve casualties’ chances of survival from sudden cardiac arrest.
