Pool safety checklist

Building and Energy is letting building industry practitioners know about its new private swimming and spa pool safety barrier checklist.  It is a simple self-assessment tool to check the basic elements of a pool’s safety barrier.

The checklist is not intended to replace the four-yearly inspection conducted by the relevant local government to verify compliance.

Whilst the checklist isn’t exhaustive, if it is used in conjunction with our Rules for Pools and Spas publication, it can be a useful tool for owners and occupiers of properties with a swimming or spa pool.

The checklist can be found, along with further information on swimming pools and their safety barriers in Rules for Pools publication, on our pool specific webpage Swimming, spa andportable pools.
