WaterMarc has renewed its accreditation for another year with Life Saving Victoria’s (LSV’s) prized Platinum Pool award.
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,” Mr Dennis said.
Maddison Kowal, Operations Manager at WaterMarc said, “We would like to give a big shout out to the team for the continued effort to provide a safe aquatic space for our local community to enjoy. A special thanks to Operations Coordinator at WaterMarc, Kane Murfett for his assistance to renew our status for another year.”
WaterMarc is the largest aquatic and leisure facility in Victoria’s northern region, offering you the best in swimming, fitness and fun. This multi-activity regional venue serves the Greensborough community and surrounding suburbs. You can experience advanced aquatic and leisure programs and facilities which cater for the inclusion of people of all ages and abilities.
Wes Hurrey, WaterMarc Venue Manager said, “This achievement is a massive credit to the operations team given the significant staffing challenges of recent months. Coming out of COVID lockdowns Maddison and Kane have still been able to maintain the highest level of health and safety for staff and patrons to achieve the Platinum Pool status.”
Venues that have qualified for the Platinum Pool award are certified and provided with internal materials within the venue The accreditation is valid for twelve months and forms an important component of the overall safety planning and continual improvement strategy.
