A SWIMMING pool in Somerset is celebrating receiving a top award that recognises good practice.
Taunton Pool, operated by Tone Leisure, received the Institute of Sport and Recreation Management’s (ISRM) top National Pool Safety Award (NPSA).
The award is an initiative which provides a framework for promoting high standards of pool safety in the UK, and recognises good practice.
Bridget Lock, operations manager at Taunton Pool said: “We are absolutely thrilled to have gained this prestigious safety award, Staff have worked really hard to achieve it and I know the award will be a benefit in the future for the continuous improvement in swimming pool safety.”
The NPSA is a voluntary scheme, open to all swimming pools in the UK, including public pools, hotel pools, health and fitness club pools and holiday park facilities.
Taunton Pool, one of 31 in the UK to achieve the award, will use the NPSA as an internal assessment and improvement plan to ensure continuous development of safety procedures and work-based training.
