When you ask a child what they want to be when they grow up, the typical responses are careers like fireman, astronaut or doctor. Not many children will say they want to be a pool safety inspector, but that doesn’t make the job any less important. So then, what does a pool safety inspector do?

Under new Victorian Legislation, all pools and spas must be registered with their local council. To be registered, an owner must be issued with a safety certification, issued by a pool safety inspector. This safety inspection and certification needs to be completed every four (4) years. 

A pool safety inspector is a privately engaged inspector, specifically trained to check the safety requirements of a pool or spa. They are different from pest and building inspectors as they have a specialized knowledge of the safety requirements of pools.
