    Drowning Detection Technologies for Public Swimming Pools  
    "Drowning risk remains the no 1 safety concern for public pools, this is the case despite significant efforts by many parties to put in place risk reduction measures, whether that be education, supervision, signage, barriers, lifeguards or a combination of the above. Proven technology can now been used, in conjunction with existing measures to significantly improve the chance of rescuing distressed swimmers before it is too late.
    The presentation covers:
    1) Performance aspects – what criteria of performance are necessary to provide improvement
    2) Technical aspects of these systems, how to choose a suitable system and what engineering and architectural design guidelines should be followed for optimum performance

    Water Park Lessons in 1-hour
      
    It wasn’t that long ago, people from most parts in Asia struggled to put food on the table. About 25 years ago, with the economic boom, water parks and western consumer lifestyle found its way to Asia. What was meant to be a mega business opportunity for the last quarter of century, has given little inspiration to the industry with many parks failing or failing to capitalise their investment. Whilst most benefitting industry leaders choose to play the ‘face-saving’ game, one man decides to confront the truth head on. He speaks his mind, allowing you to hear and see for yourself the secret of failures and the true recipe for success. He believes the lesson for water park investment is similar to driving lessons in Asia – one must not be shown the glossy brochures only.
    Using Sim’s unique knowledge of waterparks in cross-cultural emerging markets, he will explain the history and drivers behind this current situation, exposing what lies beneath the surface. A ‘no holds barred’ honest look at the industry in which Sim has carved his name with humble suggestions of how improvements can be made and how the industry can do it right.

 

 

  • 2.00-2.45pm     
    Elena Gosse, AIS   
              

    Water disinfection by electrolysis. 180 years on
                  
    180 years ago a young U.K scientist known as Michael Faraday was busy making some of the most important discoveries in history of science including the laws of electrolysis. Thanks to Mr Faraday it is now possible to disinfect large bodies of water safely, easily and economically and bid farewell to the endless cycle of chemical dosing forever. Aquatic centres, hotel and resort pools, water parks and municipal water supplies are already adopters of the technology. CEO of Australian Innovative Systems, Elena Gosse explains how the technology works, along with its benefits.
