Safety – First and Foremost
Our Approach to Safety
It is important for us to create a safe and secure environment for our participants, and we emphasize that in every stage of our activities:
Starting with watching our language and behavior, through respecting and protecting each participant’s personal space and concluding with the general conduct at each of our centers; we are prepared for any challenge or event. In addition, this approach is expressed by maintaining a professional and responsible conduct in the water, as well as a high ratio of instructors to trainees, the use of designated flotation vests, drills and certifications which are frequently performed to the entire staff.
A side from observing the regulations, together we have created a constant state of preparedness – “HaGal Sheli” has made a strategic decision to invest all that it takes to safeguard what is most important – human life. Our main goal – zero life-threatening incidents.
In order to meet this goal we operate on several levels:
- Maintaining a Learning and debriefing policy, similar to the one in the Israeli air force.
- Training staff through simulating operating under various dangerous conditions and maintaining preparedness for any situation.
- A stringent approach – “when there is doubt – there is no doubt“.
- Always looking to Improve – in training, in qualifications, in equipment: use of water-proof cellphones and finally: keeping a high ratio of instructors to trainees, much higher than required by law.
Together we will continue to act with responsibility, dedication and professionalism.
