Please email a letter of correction stating how the violations listed below have been and/or will be corrected to firstname.lastname@example.org within 30 days of this inspection.
|Item: Pool and Spa decks shall be maintained slip-resistant, and free of litter, obstructions and tripping hazards.|
|Comment: I would recommend repatching the trip hazards on the deck annually.|
|Item: A fence, wall, or other means of enclosure shall have no openings that would allow the passage of a 4-inch sphere, and shall not be easily climbable by toddlers.|
|Comment: Please fix the gap in the fence that is > 4”.|
|Item: At least one gate or door with an opening of at least 36 inches in width shall be provided for emergency purposes. Gates and doors shall be lockable. Except where lifeguard or structural program supervision is provided whenever the swimming pool is open, gates and doors shall be self-closing and self-latching|
|Comment: Please consider adding a latch to the pool entrance that can be secured while the pool is unlocked and in use. This is not mandatory since you always have lifeguards on site when pool is open, but would provide another level of security for your facility with young campers of all water skill levels.|
|Item: The door of a chlorine room or building shall be secured in an open position whenever the room is occupied and locked closed when the room is not occcupied.|
|Comment: Pump room door should be latchable, even an eye and hook lock toward the top of the door would provide a barrier from the campers being able to wander in there.|
|Item: The facility management shall develop a written emergency plan. The plan shall include, but may not be limited to, actions to be taken in cases of drowning, serious illness or injury, chemical-handling accidents, weather emergencies, and other serious incidents. The emergency plan shall be reviewed with the facility staff at least once a year, and the dates of review or training shall be recorded in the pool records|
|Comment: Please add an emergency plan for serious illness or injury and weather emergencies to your EAP.|
