For over 20 years Keep Watch has been educating Australian parents and carers on how to keep their children safe when in, on or around the water.
Drowning is one of the leading causes of death in children 0–4 years of age. Between 1 July 2002 and 30 June 2016, 430 children under the age of five drowned in Australian waterways.
The Keep Watch program has four key drowning prevention Actions. These should not be used individually but together to maximise child safety – if one line of defence fails, the other prevention measures will be actively working to prevent your child from drowning.

As Summer approaches, the need for parents and carers of children to be aware of and actively following the Royal Lifesaving Society Keep Watch Regulations is critical.
