The Lifesaving Society's aquatic safety accreditation program is designed to recognize those facilities that meet a recognized operating standard. This program is designed to enhance public safety and reduce the risk of water-related incidents in aquatic facilities. Facilities that are successful in their inspection process may apply for accreditation.
The Lifesaving Society will award its Accredited Facility certificate, mounted on a wall plaque, after the Society receives the original inspection report with the accreditation fee.
The Lifesaving Society accreditation fee covers:
- Accreditation certification fee
- Accredited Facility wall plaque
- Lifesaving Society database of accredited facilities
- Training of Inspectors
Fee for Lifesaving Society Affiliates:
- $100 per year-round facility
- $50 for seasonal facilities
Fee for non-affiliates:
- $200 per year-round facility
- $100 for seasonal facilities
Facilities are invited to renew their accreditation regularly. From their last accreditation, we recommend facilities apply for re-accreditation no more than: one year for seasonal facilities (i.e., summer-only facilities) and two years for year-round facilities. Accreditation and re-accreditation dates are noted on the Accredited Facility plaque.
Affiliates may renew their accreditation by being re-inspected and forwarding their inspection report with the accreditation fee to the Lifesaving Society. The renewal fee is the same as a first time accreditation fee.
