Child and Youth Risk Management Strategy (CYRMS)

SLSQ recognises that the identification and management of risks of harm to children and young people is essential to the creation of a safe and supportive Surf Life Saving environment. Nobby's Beach SLSC is committed to providing and promoting safe environments for children and youth.

The Child and Youth Risk Management Strategy (CYRMS) provides the framework to which Nobby's Beach SLSC (as a SLSQ entity) can meet the legislative requirements and comply with the State Government’s Working with Children (Risk Management and Screening) Act 2000. The strategy helps to ensure the organisation is providing a safe and supportive service environment for children and young people, by identifying and minimising risks.

The strategy incorporates a number of component which are utilised to create a safe environment and ensure it remains safe. Screening employees and volunteers through the blue card system is part of the strategy.
