Our commitment to aquatic safety

Sutherland Shire Leisure Centres have a strong history of commitment to aquatic safety.

All our pools are tested every 3 hours by qualified and experienced aquatic technicians, adhering to the NSW Health Guidelines for safe pool operation. In addition, our pools are tested monthly by an independent external company in a laboratory. Our environmentally friendly disinfection and filtration systems are industry leading and monitored and upgraded regularly in line with industry best practice. 

All our pools comply with NSW Health Guidelines and follow Royal Life Saving Australia's Guidelines for safe pool operations (GSPO). The Guidelines for Safe Pool Operations is an example of a venue based risk management tool provided as a voluntary guide for operators which assists an operator in satisfying their legislative duties and providing a high standard of care for visitors to their centre. Operators of aquatic facilities are charged with a responsibility for public and occupational health and safety and they must work within a diverse web of standards, state legislation and industry best practice. Although the GSPO is published by Royal Life Saving, it represents the collective opinion of the aquatics industry and a range of expert personnel across Australia through its development process. The Guidelines are intended to be voluntary, acting as a guide to operators on the safe operation of swimming facilities
