BC & Yukon Waterfront Safety Standards 2012

Waterfront Safety Guidelines will assist waterfront owners and operators in providing a safe aquatic environment for their patrons.

Waterfront Safety Guidelines explains the Society's position on waterfront safety issues and informs owners and operators about safety expectations as a preventive measure before drownings occur.

Waterfront Safety Guidelines offers recommendations for minimum standards of operation for waterfront facilities where the general public is admitted for aquatic activity. Recommendations apply to both supervised and unsupervised swimming areas, unless otherwise specified. All facilities which “invite” the public to use the waterfront (by providing and maintaining beaches, parking lots, pathways, etc.) should implement these guidelines.
