Pool Safety Inspection on the Gold Coast
Queensland and the Gold Coast in particular is lucky to have a warmer climate and as a result many Gold Coast homes enjoy year round swimming in the family pool. While it is an activity enjoyed by many, swimming pools are also associated with the leading cause of death in Queensland children aged one to four, drowning.
This could be attributed to a number of causes, including lack of supervision and swimming ability, however the most common is the lack of appropriate fencing and barriers preventing children from falling in the pool.
Because of this the Queensland Government has introduced new pool fencing laws to try and reduce the number of drowning deaths by increasing the effectiveness of fence barriers so that the family pool can remain a safe place. These laws affect home owners with existing pools, those building new pools, resorts and complex pools.
If you have an existing pool then you will need to make sure your pool fence complies with the new laws by 30 November 2015 by getting a qualified pool inspector to provide you with a Pool Safety Certificate.
