Poolsafe Membership Fees
The following is the fee structure for Poolsafe:
Meets all standards at the first visit and no further follow up is required by the Assessor.
Cost $750.00+GST membership fee
Meets most standards at the visit but fails in a number of areas. The facility does not have Poolsafe accreditation until all requirements are met (PENDING).
As a result of the failure a follow up is required by the assessor to ensure compliance and change has been undertaken based upon the assessor feedback and recommendations OR significant follow up is required by the Aquatics Programme Manager (not necessarily a second visit).
Additional cost $750+GST penalty.
Removed from Poolsafe scheme:
Fails consistently at the visit and follow up visits. Does not provide evidence that the standards have been achieved nor that the feedback from the assessor has been actioned.
A formal letter written to property owner advising of the non-compliance, and partners advised of non-compliant facilities. If non-compliant after two visits, the organisation/facility will be removed from the scheme and a letter will be written to WorkSafe New Zealand, Water Safety NZ and the facility owner about the facility's repeated non-compliance.
A facility can apply to be part of the Poolsafe scheme the following year at a cost of $750 + GST. The expectation will be that all requirements will be met at the first visit.
