Platinum Pool Program
LSV would like to congratulate and acknowledge the following teams who demonstrated excellence in aquatic safety and were subsequently reaccredited as Platinum Pool.
- Carlton Baths
- Hawthorn Aquatic and Leisure Centre
- Kensington Community Recreation Centre
To achieve accreditation, facilities had to undergo mystery guest visits, achieve 100% compliance in a Pool Safety Assessment and demonstrate active implementation of the Watch Around Water program.
The receipt of Platinum Pool accreditation is recognised as a sign of excellence within the Industry. http://lsv.com.au/platinum-pool-program/
Let us know if you have any Everyday Lifesavers at your facility and ensure that they are properly recognised for their actions.
Everyday Lifesavers are those people whose actions save the life of another. This could include the rescue of a person with a pre-existing medical condition/injury or stopping somebody from getting themselves into a dangerous situation, before they require rescuing.
We are proud to support the Everyday Lifesaver campaign within the aquatics industry and are always excited to hear how facility staff and patrons are making a real difference in the community.
