Ascot Vale Leisure Centre Receive Platinum Pool Award

Ascot Vale Leisure Centre has been accredited with Life Saving Victoria’s (LSV’s) prized Platinum Pool award. In doing so, the facility joins an exclusive club of just 25 Victorian aquatic facilities currently holding the accreditation. Ascot Vale is the first facility operated by Belgravia Leisure to achieve this.

Platinum Pool status is awarded to aquatic facilities providing outstanding levels of safety. To achieve the award Ascot Vale 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," 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.

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.
