More so than any other swim school, at SwimWay we make health and safety a major priority in the way we run the company and our lessons. When dealing with swimming lessons for all ages and abilities it is extremely important to put safety first, and we do exactly that. It would be more cost effective for our company to run lessons with larger groups, but health and safety and quality of lessons is more important to us. This is the primary reason we keep all our lessons as private or semi-private – allowing our instructors to focus fully on each student’s safety and needs within the lessons.
We have also brought into the SwimWay team a specialised health and safety consultant – David Perry. With over 15 years’ experience in the industry, working with leisure centres and private swimming schools, as well as the STA (one of the UK governing swimming teaching bodies), David Perry brings a professional eye and mind to the health and safety concerns of our swim school.
David routinely runs our termly first aid, CPR and other emergency training courses. He makes regular monthly pool visits to ensure our sites are up to spec and also meets with the site owners and SwimWay management to discuss and resolve potential issues. He is our eyes and ears for the health and safety awareness of the company, keeping us on the forefront of safety during our lessons.
