Queensland Tourism Industry Council (QTIC) has worked with Surf Life Saving Queensland to prepare the 2017 Water Safety Handbook.
The handbook is a set of best practice guidelines for tourism operators to assist in keeping Queensland's visitors safe in all aquatic environments.

It is intended that tourism operators refer to these guidelines to develop their own operations manuals and to utilise the checklists to conduct regular safety audits.

The resource also includes linkes to download the Beach Safety App which hsa direct access to up to date information on Queensland's beaches, translated to 72 languages.
