Having a pool to splash around in at home is a welcome respite from hot summer days. It also increases your property’s overall resale value. However, owning a pool also poses a significant safety risk as drowning incidents among infants and toddlers at home have always been – and continue to be – a serious risk, both nationally and internationally. In light of this stark reality, local government legislation was put in place to prevent such tragedies or minimise its risk of occurring as much as possible.
In order to comply with legislation, you have the responsibility of contacting a pool safety inspector, Gold Coast-based, to inspect your pool area and provide you with a pool safety certificate. If you aren’t familiar with these certifications, read on to fully understand what is expected of you as a pool owner and how to remain within the bounds of the law.
What To Look For In A Professional Pool Safety Certifier
All pool safety inspectors need to have the necessary training and certification to conduct inspections and offer their services. Always ensure that you do thorough research and check that the potential certification issuer you are considering is, in fact, fully accredited and trained, with an existing license to operate.
Pool safety inspectors need to go through frequent training and professional development to update their knowledge and remain up to date with any changes in legislation. Hiring an unqualified inspector may cost you less on the surface, but in the end, you will end up suffering the consequences of bearing an invalid certificate and dealing with fines as a result. Always ensure that you’re dealing with a professional, qualified service provider.
