undergone extensive training to familiarize themselves with the

as either "priority" or "secondary" concerns.
For a complete inspection, access must be provided to the:
- Public and staff changerooms
- Pool office
- Equipment room
- Filter room
- Chlorine room
Standards: The Lifesaving Society applies the
standards found in Ontario government regulations, guidelines and
protocols, together with its own aquatic safety standards developed
as a result of research, experience and findings from drowning
Time and Timing: Allow approximately one hour

Inspectors do not require exclusive use of the facility.
