WaterMarc awarded Life Saving Victoria Platinum Pool accreditation

WaterMarc awarded Life Saving Victoria Platinum Pool accreditation
November 29, 2018

Banyule City Council's WaterMarc facility has been awarded Life Saving Victoria's Platinum Pool accreditation, joining 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.

Life Saving Victoria (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, advising "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 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.
