A Lifeguard Index provides a total facility evaluation including scan times of your lifeguards as well as ideas and suggestions as seen in a full day’s observation of your facility. The intent of the Index is to capture in time a thorough evaluation of the safety system at your facility. It includes more than 80 and usually more than 100 observations of the lifeguard positions. It leaves the facility with a clear direction of how to improve lifeguard performance. The frequency of the Lifeguard Index varies based on the size of the facility and number of lifeguards trained.
