Developed with input from organisations including the HSE and the Institute of Outdoor Learning, the programme focuses on educational visits close to water and balances safety management with effective emergency response skills. 

Gavin Howat, HM Inspector of Health and Safety at the HSE, said: “Water is a significant factor in a number of deaths of young people on trips. The awareness given by this RLSS UK course should equip leaders to make informed judgements about water and its hazards.”
