Aquatic Safety Audits
The Society provides confidential consultation services to evaluate aquatic facilities and their operating practices. Aquatic Safety Audits are designed to maximize safety by identifying what steps can be taken to minimize the risk of drowning or serious injury.
Audits can have a narrow or topical focus on one specific aspect of one facility's operation or be a comprehensive review of the entire aquatic operation. This advice is used by facility owners/operators to develop and implement operational practices to enhance patron and staff safety within their facility. Audits have been used to evaluate public and private recreational facilities, as well as, other aquatic environments such as irrigation canals and provincial park beaches.
