Our 3 leisure centres have again been accredited with Life Saving Victoria’s (LSV) Platinum Pool Award. We join just 40 other Victoria aquatic facilities currently holding the accreditation. 

To achieve Platinum Pool status we were required to undertake a rigorous series of assessments with LSV. This award demonstrates that we consistently provide outstanding levels of safety to our customers.

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,” Mr Dennis said. “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.

This accreditation is valid for 12 months and forms an important component of our overall safety planning and continual improvement strategy.
