SAFETY BARRIERS – A LEGAL REQUIREMENT IN VICTORIA

ROYAL LIFE SAVING CLUB POOL SAFETY CHECKLIST

Each year in Victoria, backyard pool accidents result in 40+ hospital admissions with 4 – 5 children 0 – 4yrs tragically drowning. Evidence suggests that in most cases, faulty pool barriers are to blame.

Royal Life Saving has developed a HOME POOL SAFETY CHECKLIST. This checklist allows pool owners to conduct a self-assessment of the home pool and its surrounds to ensure it is safe for everyone to enjoy and minimises the risk of young children drowning.

The checklist features 8 sections; the Swimming Pool Gate, Swimming Pool Fence, Around the Swimming Pool Fence, Supervision, Pump, Grates and Suction, Emergency Preparation, Chemicals, Electricity.

This checklist does not substitute for a pool inspection and has been produced for education purposes only. Contact Metro Building Inspections for a professional assessment of your pool’s compliance today.
