Shepparton Aquamoves receives Life Saving Victoria Platinum Pool Award
Aquamoves Shepparton has been accredited with Life Saving Victoria’s prized Platinum Pool award - becoming one of just 24 Victorian aquatic facilities currently holding the accreditation.
Life Saving Victoria (LSV) awards Platinum Pool status to aquatic facilities providing outstanding levels of safety and, to achieve the award, Aquamoves had to undertake a rigorous series of assessments to ensure it met all of LSV’s criteria for the accreditation.
LSV General Manager - Public Training and Pool Safety, Andy Dennis, said the award is a way of recognising those facilities that have attained the highest level of safety requirements and standards.
Dennis advised “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.
Greater Shepparton City Council Director Community, Kaye Thomson says Aquamoves’ achievement is made even more significant by being the only centre outside of metropolitan Melbourne and Geelong to have ever been accredited with the award.
Thompson added “a rural centre achieving the required compliance score of 100% is certainly industry leading and something that requires an exemplary commitment to staff training and a diligent adherence to operating procedures.
“The Aquamoves team hold safety as a major pillar of success in their strategic plan and it is something they are absolutely committed to maintaining and continually improving upon year on year.”
Facilities who 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.
