Job Description for Lifeguard

A lifeguard is responsible for ensuring swimmers' safety and well being in swimming environments such as public pools and beaches. Lifeguards hold a physical job that requires the ability to swim and perform rescues for individuals in distress. Proper knowledge of AED, CPR and similar life-saving techniques is needed; proper first aid skills are mandatory, as is lifeguard certification. The lifeguard's environment is predominantly outdoors with the exception of indoor swimming pools. Coworkers are typically fellow lifeguards; aside from coworkers, lifeguards participate in substantial social interaction with beach- and pool goers. Their hours vary depending on their facility's hours of operation and available shifts.
