Royal Life Saving recognises YMCA Victoria with Excellence in Incident Management award
The Royal Life Saving Society - Australia’s 2018 National Aquatic Industry Safety Awards has recognised YMCA Victoria for Excellence in Incident Management for the development of their centralised Incident Management Procedure.
In 2016 YMCA Victoria identified that a formal organisational approach was required to be adopted in the management of incidents.
Following extensive consultation with all areas of the organisation in December 2016, YMCA Victoria introduced its new Incident Management Procedure to effectively streamline incident response and management across all facilities, programs and sectors across the state. The goal of the procedure was to minimise the risk of incidents by identifying and remedying root causes.
Nathan Simandl, Senior Health, Safety and Environment Advisor, YMCA Victoria said the team have worked really hard to creative safer places for their diverse community, advising “getting this right took two years, consulting with senior managers and on the ground staff to ensure our Incident Management Procedure wasn’t just words on a page, but something tangible and practical.”
The awards are an initiative of the National Aquatic Industry Safety Committee to acknowledge the achievements of aquatic facilities and individuals towards improving health and safety outcomes.
Nathan said winning Excellence in Incident Management reassures their efforts.
Simandl added “we are absolutely thrilled to win this award, and thank the National Aquatic Industry Safety Committee for recognising the hard work of our people who commit to the health and safety of everyone who comes into our facilities.”
