Pool attendants must be responsible for all matters concerning swimming pools in either public places or health clubs. They must keep watch over behaviour of people in the pool and be aware of any health and safety hazards or associated problems such as someone struggling to swim.

Should any problems arise, the pool attendant would be the point of contact for help, and will be able to solve the situation, by rescuing a struggling swimmer, administering first aid where necessary, and providing general assistance.

The entire domain of the swimming pool and the surrounding area, often including steam rooms, saunas and Jacuzzis, comes under the watch of the attendants. They supervise and sometimes help swimmers and are responsible for enforcing any rules put in place for the safety of those using the facilities.

Some pool attendants may take on extra work as swimming teachers, where they would be able to further supplement their income.
