The Council acts as a consultative forum comprising of the major water safety and related government agencies and focuses on the presentation of key water safety issues to governments, industry and the community.

The Australian Water Safety Council is committed to improving water safety in Australia as demonstrated through the production and implementation of four National Water Safety Plans/Strategies.
