Life Saving Victoria renews Dandenong Oasis Platinum Pool status
Dandenong Oasis remains part of an exclusive club of just 30 Victorian aquatic facilities currently holding Platinum Pool status accreditation following receipt of 100% on its recent Pool Safety Assessment conducted by Life Saving Victoria.
Platinum Pool status is awarded to aquatic facilities providing outstanding levels of safety. To achieve the award, Dandenong Oasis had to undertake a rigorous series of assessments to ensure it met all of Life Saving Victoria (LSV)'s criteria for the accreditation.
LSV General Manager - Public Training and Pool Safety, Andy Dennis advised that the award is a way of recognising those facilities that have attained the highest level of safety requirements and standards, explaining "the award is similar to accrediting a lifesaver, and therefore facilities must undergo a thorough assessment of their skills and performance and attain a high standard throughout.
"We are very selective when awarding Platinum Pool accreditation. LSV must be satisfied that exemplary levels of aquatic safety are being achieved and constantly maintained before the award is issued.”
Included in the award is an industry leading Pool Safety Assessment, a six-monthly assessment on implementation, Mystery Guest Visits and adherence to the best practice 'Watch Around Water' child supervision program.
Facilities that have qualified for the Platinum Pool award are certified and provided with internal materials within the facility. The accreditation is valid for twelve months and forms an important component of the overall safety planning and continual improvement strategy.
After a tumultuous year of COVID-19 related restrictions and closures, receiving the LSV Platinum Pool Award has been welcome news to the team at Dandenong Oasis.
Centre Manager, James Rossiter, said having the Platinum Pool status renewed is a testament to the hard work and dedication of the entire team.
Rossiter adds “being successfully awarded Platinum pool on an ongoing basis shows how passionate we are at Dandenong Oasis about pool safety.
“We’re very proud that Dandenong Oasis remains a premium facility in Victoria, and we will continue to focus on exceeding safety and industry compliance standards.”
