Australian Lifeguard Service

Surf Life Saving is one of the largest providers of paid lifeguards in the world, employing over 700 paid lifeguards in all States of Australia.

The Australian Lifeguard Service (ALS) is a fully integrated national lifeguard service, providing services to local government councils and land managers all across Australia.

As a leader in the aquatic safety and lifeguard services industry, the ALS sets international standards through quality nationally accredited training, highly skilled staff and stringent standard operating practices.

The ALS has always been dedicated to saving lives and is committed to the provision of a proactive service on the beaches and within the community.

As a division of SLSA, the ALS provides professional lifeguard services to local governments and land managers, and is the sole provider of lifeguard services to coastal local government areas in Victoria, South Australia, Tasmania and the major provider of services in Queensland, Western Australia and in NSW. Our territory encompasses more than 250 beaches nationally.

The ALS also works with land managers who provide their own service by providing advice and assistance on qualifications, training, standards and compliance issues.
