Public Access Liferings

As one more strategy to prevent drownings, the Lifesaving Society of BC & Yukon offers communities the opportunity to participate in the Public Access Lifering (PAL) Project. The purpose of the project is to put lifesaving equipment on unsupervised publicly accessible waterfronts, docks, and beaches.

After researching several models of Lifering housings, the Lifesaving Society has determined that the best value for money is found using the Guardian, manufactured in the UK by Glasdon. These units provide durability, ease of use, simple installation, and minimal maintenance.

In addition to the Lifering Housing unit the PAL Project offers customized SIGNAGE that is for each location, highlighting Lifering usage and unique cautionary warnings. Customized signage will allow the public to quickly identify hazards in the area and avoid getting into trouble. The graphics used are in keeping with Parks Canada and ISO recommendations therefore assuring that the signage will be readily understood by all visitors.

Waterfront Safety Signage

The Lifesaving Society custom waterfront safety signage is designed to give people the information they need to avoid harm. Our signs use text and symbols in formats that reflect today’s best practices in risk communication.

Utilizing the latest ISO symbols and OSHA/ANSI Z535 content requirements, these products provide clear information to viewers about the location’s hazards and how to avoid them. In conjunction with the placement of this Public Access Lifering (PAL) unit, customized signage offers an opportunity for safety precautions to help prevent water incidents. It provides ideal colours, size and placement to attract visitors, hold their attention and provide vital safety information for that location.

Customized signage will allow the public to quickly identify hazards in the area and avoid getting into trouble. The graphics used are in keeping with Parks Canada and ISO recommendations, therefore, assuring that the signage will be readily understood by all visitors.
