Pool Safety Inspections & Certificates

New pool safety regulations have recently been released by the Queensland government to protect your family from unsafe conditions in and around your pool.

We work extremely hard everyday to ensure the safety and well-being of everyone who may be in and around a pool area.

At Robson's Pool Safety Inspections, it's our mission to ensure tragedies do not happen in your pool. Having a compliant pool fence is crucial in aiding your overall 'safety strategy' and is vital in making your pool what it was intended to be - a fun and safe place for you and your family.

Whilst our workmanship, knowledge and experience is certainly expert, we do like to stress the importance of adhering to general safety measures around your pool. For example, we highly recommend always supervising a swimming child and always locking your pool gate. As parents you will know how clever your little ones can be, so please be vigilant in order to avoid the unthinkable.


Do I need a pool safety inspection certificate?

Yes! Queensland's pool laws have been revised with new regulations and guidelines that you must follow if you own or manage a pool. These new laws came into effect during December 2010, and have been strictly enforced since that time. For a private pool you are required by law to renew the pool safety certificate when selling a private property with a pool, this can be done by the seller or the purchaser of the property before 90 days of the settlement date.

For a private property, a pool safety certificate is current for 2 years. If the property is leased, there must be a current certificate before the new lease starts. If you provide accommodation, you must always have a current safety certificate.

If you manage a shared pool, it is mandatory to renew your pool safety certificate. Certificates expire after 1 year and a current certificate must be in place before a new sale or lease for the building. Please click here to read more about shared pool / landlord / property manager or body corporate managed pools.

However, all pools in Queensland should have been made compliant and remain compliant at all times and we recommend to have your pool checked by a pool safety inspection or consultant to ensure you always remain compliant.

If you don't comply with pool safety standards, local governments can issue on-the-spot fines of $883.05 for individuals and $2523 for companies. The maximum penalty a court can impose is $20,814.75.
