WaterMarc awarded Life Saving Victoria Platinum Pool accreditation
In receiving this accreditation, WaterMarc joins an exclusive club of just 24 Victorian aquatic facilities currently holding the accreditation.
Platinum Pool status is awarded to aquatic facilities providing outstanding levels of safety.
To achieve the award WaterMarc 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.
“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,” said Dennis.
“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,” he said.
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 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.
