Services for Self-Managed Pools

 

General Consulting
The highly qualified staff at Atlanta Swimming can assist you in every aspect of effectively managing your pool. Specifically, our areas of expertise include:

  • Lifeguard training and evaluation
  • Staff management
  • Pool safety, including policies and procedures
  • Overall facility operations, from membership control to pump and filter maintenance

If your need is beyond our area of expertise, we will assess the current condition and work with one of our channel partners to ensure your need is fulfilled.

Safety Inspections
Safety is the greatest priority of any pool. Let one of our experts come and inspect your facility. With this inspection, Atlanta Swimming will provide you with an audit report which will identify any possible safety risks your facility might have and a solution. We recommend taking advantage of this service before the summer swimming season gets underway.

In-Service Training
All certification agencies recommend and/or require at least three (3) in-service training sessions during a summer swim season. These sessions include:

  • CPR and back-boarding practice
  • Role-playing of potential deck situations between guard and patron
  • Safety policy and procedure review

This will help your guards refine their skills and promote confidence in their training to react to any situation in a timely and calm manner. Remember, your guards are there to protect the lives of your patrons!

Surprise Inspections
Surprise inspections are a great way to test your guard’s skills and keep them mindful of their job responsibilities. Surprise inspections will challenge a guard’s skills in rule enforcement, CPR, First Aid and recognition of a drowning victim. We will also provide site specific ancillary job inspections, ie: trash cans, bathrooms, pool chemicals and deck cleanliness. Surprise inspections can be used to reward guards or encourage guards that this might not be the job for them.

Starfish Aquatic Swim Lesson Program (coming 2013)
Beginning summer of 2013, we will bring Starfish Aquatics’ Learn to Swim program to Atlanta. This is the most widely known effective swim lesson program in the U.S. We will assist clubs in the implementation of this program and train their swim lesson instructors. This program adds value to the membership of your club and to the safety at your facility.

 


 

Services for Management Company Managed Pools

 

General Consulting
If there is any aquatic need you have that your pool company can not provide or if you simply need a second option, have one of our Atlanta Swimming consultants help you. If your need is beyond our area of expertise, we will assess the current condition and work with one of our channel partners to ensure your need is fulfilled.
                 
Independent Audits
Are your guards / pool management company performing to their full potential? Are you receiving complaints from your members about the guards at your pool? Schedule an independent audit to support the work of your pool management company or to have evidence of poor performance when you confront your pool company about their contracted services. Independent audits can consist of any and all of the following areas:

  • Surprise Inspections - Surprise Inspections are a great way to keep your guards on their toes and mindful of their job responsibilities. Most pool management companies state that they provide in-service training. If they are currently having your guards attend, how effective is it? Surprise inspections will test a guard's skills in rule enforcement, CPR, First Aid and recognition of a drowning victim. We also offer site specific ancillary job inspections including, but not limited to: trash cans, bathrooms, pool chemicals and deck cleanliness. Surprise inspections can be used to reward guards or encourage guards that this might not be the job for them.

  • Lifeguard Skills Test - Since you are not directly involved in hiring the guards at your facility, how can you gain the confidence that each lifeguard has the skills to save a life? Yes, they have the required certification; however, when was the last time they practiced their guarding skills? A lifeguard skills test at any time during the season gives you the confidence that your staff is prepared for an emergency situation.

  • Pool Safety Equipment - Many county and state regulations only require you to have the basic, outdated rescue equipment to open your pool. However, all lifeguard training agencies train your guards with the most current equipment available on the market. Not having the latest equipment is hazardous to your members and their guests, but also handicaps your lifeguards from doing their job as well as they can.

  • Cleanliness - You and your membership expect the facility to be in clean order. You rely on your staff and the pool management company you have hired to adhere to your standards. Let us come inspect the cleanliness of your facility and evaluate it based on the time of day, bather load and number of staff on duty.

  • Site Specific Items - We can independently audit your facility in any capacity you need. We want to help you make your facility the best and safest environment it can be.

Drowning: Fact Sheet

Overview: Every day, about ten people die from unintentional drowning. Of these, two are children aged 14 or younger. Drowning is the second leading cause of death for children ages 1 to 14 years.

How big is the problem?
In 2007, there were 3,443 fatal unintentional drowning's (non-boating related) in the United States, averaging ten deaths per day. More than one in five people who die from drowning are children 14 and younger. For every child who dies from drowning, another four received emergency department care for nonfatal submersion injuries.

Children: Children ages 1 to 4 have the highest drowning rates. In 2007, among children 1 to 4 years old who died from an unintentional injury, almost 30% died from drowning.1 Fatal drowning remains the second-leading cause of unintentional injury-related death for children ages 1 to 14 years.

What factors influence drowning risk?
Lack of Supervision. Supervision by a lifeguard or designated water-watcher is important to protect young children when they are in the water, whether a pool or bathtub.

How can drowning be prevented?
Supervision
when in or around the Water.
Designate a responsible adult to watch young children while in the bath and all children swimming or playing in or around water. Supervisors of preschool children should provide “touch supervision”, be close enough to reach the child at all times. Adults should not be involved in any other distracting activity (such as reading, playing cards, talking on the phone, or mowing the lawn) while supervising children.

Buddy System. Always swim with a buddy. Select swimming sites that have lifeguards whenever possible.

Seizure Disorder Safety. If you or a family member has a seizure disorder, provide one-on-one supervision around water, including swimming pools. Consider taking showers rather than using a bath tub for bathing.

Learn to Swim. Formal swimming lessons can protect young children from drowning. However, even when children have had formal swimming lessons, constant, careful supervision when children are in the water, and barriers, such as pool fencing, to prevent unsupervised access are necessary.

Learn Cardiopulmonary Resuscitation (CPR). In the time it might take for paramedics to arrive, your CPR skills could make a difference in someone’s life.

Do Not Use Air-Filled or Foam Toys. Do not use air-filled or foam toys, such as "water wings", "noodles", or inner-tubes, in place of life jackets (personal flotation devices). These toys are not designed to keep swimmers safe.
