THE company which runs Southsea’s Pyramids Centre has passed a health and safety assessment with flying colours.

Consultants Quality Leisure Management gave Southsea Community Leisure Limited’s work a 78 per cent rating. It was a huge improvement on its previous score of 54 per cent, which was recorded in December 2010.

The test covered a risk assessment, emergency management, swimming pool safety, control of hazardous substances and staff training.

As previously reported in The News, the management of the Pyramids is out for tender and companies have until June to register their interest.

SCLL wants to stay in charge. Tim Herman, SCLL’s chief executive officer, said: ‘We’re delighted with this result as it’s crucial to our delivering an improving quality of service to both our members and the general public.’

Andrew Long, manager of operations, said: ‘The Pyramids is certainly a safer and better organised operation than when I first joined.’
