A lifeguard is responsible for assisting in swimmers’ safety and well being in swimming environments such as public pools and beaches. Lifeguards hold a physical job that requires the ability to swim and perform rescues for individuals in distress. Proper knowledge of AED, CPR and similar life-saving techniques is needed; proper first aid skills are mandatory, as is lifeguard certification. The lifeguard’s environment is predominantly outdoors with the exception of indoor swimming pools. Coworkers are typically fellow lifeguards; aside from coworkers, lifeguards participate in substantial social interaction with beach- and pool goers. Their hours vary depending on their facility’s hours of operation and available shifts.
A lifeguard must ensure that all beach-or pool goers are abiding by the rules. Lifeguards must also be knowledgeable about – and able to share – information on current water conditions. They must be responsive to any emergencies that may arise, such as someone in need of first aid or a potential drowning victim. Additionally, they look out for unsafe conditions in the water, such as the presence of dangerous objects.
A lifeguard must renew their certification each time it expires. They are also expected to remain in sufficient physical shape to perform their duties. Good interpersonal skills and the ability to interact well with pool- and beach goers are needed as well. Lifeguard salary is mostly based on what the job can pay and very little to do with experience.
