Knox Leisureworks Aquatic and Recreation Centre has been accredited with Life Saving Victoria’s (LSV) prized Platinum Pool Award.
In doing so, the facility joins an exclusive club of just 40 Victorian facilities that currently hold the accreditation.
Platinum Pool status is awarded to aquatic facilities providing outstanding levels of safety and risk management that are recognised as a sign of excellence.
“Platinum Pool accreditation really is reserved for the best of the best, and so I congratulate Knox Leisureworks on their strong safety protocols and newly-minted platinum accreditation that will ensure guests of the facility are able to make the most of the new facility to learn lifelong water skills,” says Life Saving Victoria Manager, Alek Olszewski.
Included in the award is an industry leading Pool Safety Assessment – a six-month assessment on implementation, Mystery Guest Visits and adherence to best practice ‘Watch Around Water’ child supervision program.
“Knox prides itself on delivering quality service to and for our community, and hope families and residents utilising our facility can confidently continue doing so knowing it’s one of the best in the state,” Knox City Council said in a statement.
