Cairns Pool Safety Certificates - Is Your Fence Safe?

A Pool Safety Certificate is only issued when a pool is deemed to be compliant. If a pool is not compliant, you will be sent a notice of non-compliance, accompanied by a report outlining why your pool is non-compliant. But don't worry if your pool is non-compliant as you're not the only one. It is expected that up to 90% of pools in Queensland are currently non-compliant.

How to find out if your pool is compliant? BOOK AN INSPECTION - We are government certified pool inspectors, if your pool doesn't meet compliance or needs repair or maintenance we can arrange this also. We have qualified construction and landscaping professionals working with us to provide you with a hassle free transition to a SAFE POOL.


How often do you need to renew your pool safety certificate?

Home Owners. All non-shared pools (eg: the home pool) you will need to have your pool inspected every 2 years. Be Safe Pool Fence Inspections will then issue you with a new certificate of compliance also know as a Pool Safety Certificate.

Short Term Accommodation Providers. For shared pools associated with short term accommodation, such as hotels, motels, Resorts, backpackers or hostels, a six month phase-in period applies to obtain a pool safety certificate. Pool inspections must be performed every 12 months and a new swimming pool safety certificate displayed. Without a pool safety certificate short term accommodation providers can not rent out a room. Don't risk loosing income, arrange a pool safety inspection now. You can pre-book online to avoid the rush.

Body Corporates. A two year phase-in period to obtain a pool safety certificate applies to other shared pools, such as common pools in a block of units. However a pool safety certificates will be required earlier if a unit in the complex sells or is leased within the 2 year phase in period. Once compliant, shared pools in unit complexes will need to be inspected every 12 months.

When selling or leasing a property with shared pool. It is then up to the Body Corporate to arrange for a pool safety inspection. Sufficient works must be carried out to meet compliance standards should a pool not comply. Once issued with a Pool Safety Certificate, an inspection will be required every year.

Proposed changes will require pool owners to have a current compliance certificate certifying that their pool meets safety standards. This certificate will be required at time of lease or sale from December this year.?

Pool Safety Qld

The Queensland Government has introduced Australia's toughest new pool safety laws as a result of the most comprehensive review of Queensland's swimming pool safety laws in nearly 20 years.

The new pool safety laws aim to further reduce the incidences of drowning and serious immersion injuries of young children in swimming pools.

Between 1 January 2004 and 18 May 2010, 35 children under five years of age drowned in Queensland's residential swimming pools, as well as two drownings in wading pools and one in a home-made pool.
