Safety Auditor Program
American Pool’s safety auditor program helps to ensure that the safety of pool patrons. This program includes periodic, unannounced on-site evaluations to check lifeguards’ skills, re-mediate issues as needed, create positive public relations and recognize what it means to have a safe pool environment.
Independent auditors conduct these unannounced on-site evaluations. These auditors will test lifeguards on injury prevention, patron surveillance, rescue skills, breathing/cardiac emergency skills and first aid skills. They also perform certification checks, uniform checks, inspection of safety equipment and general safety checklist of items.
These visits are recorded in an audit report and communicated to the facility owner. This challenging yet rewarding program has been in effect since 2005 and with the help of our highly-trained Lifeguard Safety Auditors, we are able to audit over 2,000 lifeguards a year.
The following is executed at every safety audit:
- Safety Consult
- Observe lifeguard surveillance skills
- Monitoring and testing lifeguard skills
- Check certifications
- Uniform check
- Inspect safety equipment
- General safety check
- Report audit
