Water Safety Month 2023

This year, our Water Safety Month campaign will begin 29th of November with the launch of our annual Drowning Report.

Our aim is to spread awareness and educate Victorians of the aquatic related risks this summer.

While we encourage everyone to enjoy the water this summer, we want you to be aware of the risks for both yourself and your loved ones.

Last season, there were 59 people’s lives cut short in Victorian waters. It is more important than ever that we brush up on our skills and educate people around us of the risks.

2022-2023 Drowning Report out now
Each year, LSV releases the annual Drowning Report, a detailed summary of drowning incidents in Victoria. This report provides information and statistics about the people who drowned in Victorian waterways last year and the activities they were undertaking at the time.
Our condolences are with those who lost a family member, colleague, or friend.

Have you been to Swim City?
Swim City is Life Saving Victoria’s (LSV) exciting new e-learning world that uses gamification targeted at primary-aged students. Swim City was developed in response to the cancellation of school swimming programs throughout 2021.
Students can learn key water safety messages and how to stay safe on and around water, as they explore various aquatic environments.
This module is part of the Victorian Water Safety Certificate (VWSC).

Play It Safe By The Water is a LSV led initiative which brings together aquatic industry groups, including the Victorian government, with the aim of preventing aquatic related death and injury in Victorian waterways. There are a number of videos and safety tips available for you to explore to educate yourself and others about they risks around water and how to stay safe. Messaging is available in a number of different languages.
