Pool Safety Assessment
Pool Safety Assessments are designed to provide you with an overview of your facilities performance against Industry standards and expectations. The Assessment is tailored to your facility based on the water spaces, special features and programs that you offer. The assessment is constantly reviewed by Industry experts, fully reference based and considered best practice within the Aquatic Industry.
The output of the process is a ‘safety assessment’ and ‘risk treatment plan’ which will provide information on your compliance levels and recommend practical solutions to any identified risks. Facilities are recommended to undertake Pool Safety Assessments on a regular and systematic basis. LSV recommends that facilities use risk exposure (attendance numbers) to determine this frequency.
– Over 100,000 visits per year – Assessment every year
– 20,000 – 100,000 visits per year – Assessment every two years

From 1st September 2019, the revised Supervision Section of the RLSSA Guidelines for Safe Pool Operation (GSPO) became effective across Victorian aquatic facilities. Due to the complexity and importance of providing appropriate levels of supervision at public pools, LSV have introduce a new Supervision Assessment to support facilities and identify areas for improvement.
The Supervision Assessment will review a facilities Supervision Risk Assessment and Lifeguard Deployment / Supervision Plan against the provisions set out in the GSPO. Once complete, practical feedback and advice is provided to facilities regarding their compliance with the guidelines, but more importantly whether they are providing a safe environment for customers and staff.

Mystery Guest Visit
Mystery Guest Visits (MGV) are an ideal analysis of operational practices and staff / lifeguard behavior by providing the operator with an accurate insight of the standards from the perspective of a customer.
MGV’s are particularly useful during busy periods and periods of high risk including the summer and school holidays. They are also a useful tool for facilities that do not have Management representation at the facility during key times such as early morning and evening.
Service cost (incl GST) – $600
Signage Assessments are a one stop shop establishing both current compliance levels and additional requirements of a facilities signage. As an objective risk treatment measure signage is regularly scrutinised following serious aquatic incidents and there are few excuses for insufficient / inappropriate provisions.
The Signage Assessment will audit the signage associated with the i) facility entry, ii) pool spaces, iii) special features and iv) plant / chemical storage. LSV can design, manufacture and deliver signage to ensure full compliance with the Australian Standards.
In the past four years LSV has provided signage to hundreds of facilities across Australia and has become accustomed to providing fast, cost effective and compliant solutions to new and existing facilities.
