A much loved aquatic centre in the Perth Hills passed its LGIS / Royal Life Saving Society WA (RLSSWA) Safety Assessment with flying colours on its initial assessment recently.

Shire of Mundaring’s Bilgoman Aquatic Centre received a score of 100 per cent in the RLSSWA Safety Assessment conducted in October.

The RLSSWA Safe Venues Coordinator said it was the first time that they had seen a facility achieve 100 per cent at the initial safety assessment.

Shire President James Martin said the assessment is conducted every four years to identify faults and ensures aquatic facilities are designed, maintained and operated as safe as possible.

“This is a fantastic achievement for the aquatic centre,” he said.

“To receive 100 per cent mark on all sections of the Code of Practice for design, maintenance, management, operation and construction on the initial assessment is unprecedented.”

The centre received a 100 per cent mark in 2018 but not at the first initial assessment as the process allows any issues to be rectified before the centre is passed.

Shire President James Martin said it was testament to the commitment to excellence exhibited by Shire staff generally and in particular at the aquatic centre and within the Shire’s Recreation and Leisure team.

“To receive such a fantastic result on the initial assessment shows that their daily operations, management and maintenance of the facility are 100 per cent spot on and meets all aspects of the Code for aquatic facilities,” he said.

“Congratulations to the staff involved in maintaining these standards over the past four years and we hope to pass with the same result again in the future.”

The Bilgoman Aquatic Centre provides a 50 metre heated Olympic sized swimming pool and a shaded toddler pool.

The centre is now open for the season. To find out about opening times, entry fees, or to make a group booking visit the Bilgoman Aquatic Centre page on the Shire’s website.
