"Or pick on the people that miss in-service to be the primary rescuer during audits."

"By the way, I run every single training (if I can plan my vacation around the training schedule then so can they). If I did not cancel our in-service training on 9/11 (2001) or when my wife was in the hospital then you better believe I'm…"

"Our philosophy is that you may miss training, but you WILL make it up at another time. I think the fact that you already give them three options is very generous on your part. They should be able to make at least one of them especially if…"

"Robin, We written training assignments that we provide our staff in addition to regular training. That could be an option. Another could be quick training (5-10minute) assignments done by a Lifeguard Training instructor or senior staff member. This…"

"I have around 55 lifeguards.  Most of them take summer classes and have other jobs that we have to work around.  I give them 3 different time slots that they can pick from in a week.  We do in-services every other week. "

"How many guards do you have Robin? 3 times a week would be way too extreme for my staff as we do IST's once a month. If they miss 2 in a row they get taken off the schedule. "

For years we have had a very rigid in-service schedule that requires all guards participate in one of 3 offered times a week.  I currently have a policy in place that says if you cannot attend an in-service in that week you must give me 2 days notice.  If no notice is given you are written up.  What I have been struggling with is what to do with the people who do give appropriate notice.  I feel like there are some people I never see at in-services due to their class schedules, other jobs and…See More

"Hi Nick, Your corrective actions sound suspiciously close to “progressive discipline,” a term of art exclusively reserved for bona fide (classified) employees. If this is the case, you may be inadvertently marrying an onerous process…"

Corrective Action Policy

Does anyone have a great Corrective Action Policy for lifeguards?  We currently have a point system in place and have had a lot of success with it.  Then for the first time in 4 years I actuall had to let 2 employees go due to the max point deduction this summer.  I am starting to think maybe we are too strict.  I would like to see what other places have in place for situations like this.The most common deductions we see are for missing inservice, missing shifts, and not finding a sub. What…See More

"The City of Carrollton, TX always had a strong (and on-going) maintenance team for their pools. I remember that they had a specific calendar for pulling motors and such. Check with Kim Bybee!"
