Pool Safety Solutions Online Booking Agreement
Law requires an agreement be signed between Pool Safety Solutions, the Pool Safety Inspector and the Property Owner prior to Inspection. This allows Council to monitor which Pool Safety Inspectors are inspecting which swimming pool and spa. While this procedure does require a few moments of your time, your pool and spa cannot be inspected without a signed agreement. This rule is applicable to every Queensland Pool Safety Inspector. Failure to fully read the terms and conditions of this agreement is on you.

Liabilities & Damages
We will not accept any liabilities or damages arising from our professional inspection services. According to pool safety legislation, inspectors must conduct strength and rigidity testing on the pool barrier with forces of up to 330Nm to approximately 33KG on posts and/or footings and up to 250Nm to approximately 25KG on sections between posts and/or footings. Damages as a result of this necessary testing is the owner’s responsibility.
Workplace Health & Occupational Safety
By signing this agreement, the owner is responsible for the property and the area being inspected. This area is required to be kept safe and clear from risk and hazards such as dogs, slippery floors, sharp objects, exposed electricals etc. Should the pool safety inspector become injured due to these risks or hazards while performing professional inspection services, the owner is liable for full compensation regarding this.
If the dividing fence is acting as a pool barrier, the owner is required to seek approval from their neighbour/s to access the neighbouring property/ies. If we are unable to access the neighbouring property/ies to fulfil the inspection, the owner will be issued with a Form 26 Non-Conformity Notice to arrange access for a reinspection.
