As we head into a new summer it is critical that as an industry we have patron safety front of mind and of course it is the WAW demographic that we focused on at the Launch. The Western Australian aquatic industry has a unique water safety record built on a strong strategic partnership between local government, private providers, Royal Life and LIWA Aquatics. But the driving force of this partnership is the industry members on the front line of supervision and engagement.
At the launch we were able to welcome an additional partner to this assist in the promotion and development of Watch Around Water.

Steve addressed the attendees and focused on how critical the program is in saving lives and how pleased Ixom were to be able to support LIWA Aquatics in the delivery of this critical message and looked forward to a long-term relationship.
