Risks and Avoid Liability
Consulting Services

As one of the leading water safety experts in the nation, Shawn DeRosa is very familiar with aquatic safety standards common at pools and beaches.  Why not incorporate a program or staff audit and facility inspection as part of your overall risk reduction strategy? Lend credibility to your program by an external and non-biased evaluation by a recognized water safety expert!



Program Audits / Facility Inspections

Program Audits include a review by water safety expert Shawn DeRosa of your program-related policies and procedures, including staff selection and evaluation procedures, staff manuals, pre-service and in-service training curricula as well as staffing patterns.  Recommendations are made to help improve safety and guest satisfaction while simultaneously reducing liability. Aquatic program audits are offered either with or without written findings.

On-site facility inspections allow for a visual inspection of each pool or beach facility.  Program staff are invited to participate in the walk-through and discuss on-site specific observations and recommendations. Facility inspections, which focus on safety issues rather than engineering evaluations, also are available with or without written reports. 

Staff Audits

The value of an independent operational audit is well known. Gain insight into your operations by having an auditor, unknown to your staff, evaluate your facility and your staff's performance.  What is your organization doing well?  Are there opportunities for improvement?  For those wanting a more detailed evaluation of staff performance, indivudal lifeguard skills can also be evaluated, identifying areas for future training.  Written reports provided upon request.

In-Service Training

Do you need something different for your in-service training program?  Do you want to take your staff "to the next level"?  DeRosa Aquatic Consulting is happy to develop an in-service training program to meet your needs while also incorporating your facilty-specific Emergency Action Plan.  As an American Red Cross Licensed Training Provider, DeRosa Aquatic Consulting is able to provide American Red Cross certification / recertification classes at your facility, provided of course that your facility meets the minimum requirements for conducting American Red Cross courses.
