Swimming NSW has a duty of care to ensure the health, safety and welfare of participants, volunteers,
and staff, at its swimming events. In doing so, risks that may affect participants must be identified,
assessed and eliminated or, if this is not possible, controlled.
By implementing best practice Sun Protection Guidelines, SNSW can help protect adults and children
from UV radiation and teach children good sun protection habits from an early age to reduce their risk.
These Guidelines aim to ensure all participants, officials and spectators are protected from the harmful
effects of the sun throughout the year, and that we provide a sporting environment that supports sun
safety and practices.
Here are the Swimming NSW guidelines in full.
Here is a resource for clubs to use to promote sun protection to your members.
