The Oswegoland Park District has been awarded the “Gold International Aquatic Safety Award” for 2016. 

Earning this award demonstrates that the District’s aquatic facilities exceed industry standards in risk management and epitomize aquatic safety excellence. International Aquatic Safety Awards are conferred annually to deserving aquatic facilities by Jeff Ellis & Associates, Inc. - International Aquatic Safety and Risk Management Consultants.

 Jeff Ellis & Associates is an industry leader in aquatic safety and risk management, and their Comprehensive Risk Management Program is used to train and certify staff at the District’s Civic Center Aquatic Park and Winrock Pool. 

Throughout the summer season, Jeff Ellis & Associates make three unannounced visits to audit lifeguards and overall pool safety measures. Only those clients scoring in the top 30% of the audit criteria received this award.
