Owners and occupiers of premises on which there is a private swimming pool must ensure they have a compliant safety barrier in place at all times. This document can be used to check the basic elements of pool safety barriers. It is simplified, not exhaustive, and does not cover all aspects needed to fully verify compliance of a pool barrier. Only a local government can confirm whether or not a safety barrier is compliant. This summarised checklist should be read in conjunction with Rules for Pools and Spas.
