Lifeguard Duties and Responsibilities

Oversee Swimmer Safety The primary duty of a lifeguard is to maintain swimmer safety. Lifeguards monitor water conditions and guest behavior, enforcing safety rules and paying close attention to swimmer activities and behavior. Lifeguards may issue warnings when a visitor is creating an unsafe environment and may determine when they need to ask a guest to leave. Lifeguards may also assist new swimmers to help them safely enjoy the water.
Conduct Rescue Operations Lifeguards prevent death and injury by rescuing swimmers from the water. If a lifeguard notices a swimmer struggling or beneath the water for too long, they take necessary steps to safely remove the swimmer from the water. In some cases, a lifeguard may have to begin CPR procedures, working with other lifeguards to contact emergency services personnel and provide assistance to the swimmer.

Lifeguard Skills and Qualifications
Lifeguards play a key role in creating safe environments for swimmers. Lifeguards need to be certified and possess the following skills:
  • Swimming – lifeguards must be strong swimmers who can maneuver and navigate in the water even while carrying another person
  • Observation skills – the ability to observe and monitor swimmers and safety conditions is vital in this role, so lifeguards should possess excellent observation skills
  • Attention to detail – in many cases, a lifeguard’s shift can be relatively uneventful, but a high level of attention to detail and concentration is required throughout the shift to ensure swimmer safety
  • Emergency response skills – if a swimmer is in danger, lifeguards need to calmly assess the situation and make critical decisions to provide assistance, so strong judgment and response skills are necessary
  • Communication skills – lifeguards need to effectively communicate with visitors and other lifeguards, so strong verbal communication skills are another requirement

  • For consideration, all candidates will be required to provide current lifeguard and CPR certifications

We are an equal opportunity employer and all qualified applicants will receive consideration for employment without regard to race, color, religion, sex, national origin, disability status, protected veteran status, or any other characteristic protected by law.
