Cardinia Life has recently been awarded gold pool status through the form of Life Saving Victoria’s pool safety assessment, recognising overall safety and compliance of the pool’s performance against Industry standards and expectations.
The results of this assessment are then publicised on the Victorian Public Pools Register, where the community can view their local pool to see how it performs and be assured that it is a fun and safe place to visit.
The assessment is marked on a three-tier system (Bronze, Silver and Gold) with Gold being the highest safety endorsement, this requires 100% on compliance items and 95% or higher for safety items. The Safe pool assessment was conducted in August 2019 at Cardinia Life and resulted in 100% compliance and 98.49% safety.
Aligned Leisure’s Head of Facilities Patrick Otten said, “For Cardinia Life to be recognised with a gold pool status after having only been through this process once before under the management of Aligned Leisure, in partnership with Cardinia Shire Council is a huge achievement to everyone involved.”
Cardinia Life has now been placed on a waiting list to become recognised as a platinum pool which is awarded to a capped amount of exclusive pools at any one time state-wide. Garfield, Pakenham and Koo Wee Rup outdoor pools are scheduled for their safety assessments in February.
