Hygiene and safety

Hygiene and safety are subjected to particular care. Find out the many measures that have been taken for your comfort.

 

Hygiene

  • The water of the Océade pools and water slides is recycled six times a day. For the jacuzzis,it is 48 times a day.
  • The water quality is analysed three times a day and an independant laboratory checks it every month.
  • With an internal target standard of 0.4 mg chloramine, Océade imposes without doubt one of the most stringent standards in Belgium. 
  • At Océade's request, an independent laboratory carries out hygiene quality soil tests every month.
  • Our team disinfects the soil and thoroughly inspects the park several times a day.

 

Infrastructure safety

Over the years, Océade has continuously improved its infrastructure in order to enhance comfort and safety. Below are some of these measures taken:

  • Elimination of useless areas of great depth,
  • Installation of anti-slip tiles,
  • Installing signals and signs throughout the park: lights, starting lights, warning signs, etc.
  • Installation of safety equipment: surveillance cameras, raised seat for lifeguards,
  • Providing lifejackets free of charge for non-swimmers or poor swimmers,
  • Etc.

 

Monitors

The park is continuously surveyed by a team of competent monitors and lifeguards who ensure the safety and comfort of our visitors.

  • The lifeguards carry out a vital function at Océade: the reception and safety of swimmers, both small and large.
  • Their first task is to encourage poor swimmers to wear lifejackets, to ensure that the safety signs are adhered to and to prevent dangerous behaviour.
  • Every lifeguard has a special lifejacket at his/her disposal if the need arises.

 

Lifeguard training

  • The training of lifeguards forms part of our requirements. Each lifeguard has an Adeps/Bloso lifesaving diploma.
  • Océade holds retraining programmes twice a year for its staff through an authorised body (Ligue Francophone des sauveteurs or Vlaamse reddingscentrale).
  • Training includes the use of a defibrillator.

 

Did you know?

  • Océade was the first water park to have a defibrillator.
  • Every surveillance point is regularly evaluated by a leading seaman.
