Hotel & Motel Pool Inspection
Owning or managing an accommodation facility is a huge investment but also a major responsibility, especially in light of new and complex regulations such as those governing pool safety and compliance. There is a range of accommodation facilities that need to ensure any pools, spas, jacuzzis and other similar amenities, including:
- Caravan parks
- Holiday accommodation
- Bed & breakfasts
- Guesthouses and boutiques
- Self-contained accommodation
- Farm stays
- Retirement villages
- Any other building/property with a pool/spa etc.
For this type of facility, owners and managers must ensure it is properly inspected and certified by a fully-qualified and registered pool safety barrier inspector. Did you know Pool Compliance Victoria is the only such business registered and recognised by the Victorian Building Authority (VBA)?
Wherever a pool, spa or similar amenity is present at accommodation facilities, safety must be a primary consideration – for compliance, liability and business reputation. In most cases of fatal drownings in Victoria, the pool safety barriers were found to be non-compliant, which is why authorities have clamped down with comprehensive new pool safety regulations concerning pool construction, installation, barriers and barrier maintenance.
These regulations make those responsible legally obligated to ensure the barriers and gates are safe and compliant, and enforced with strict registration, inspection and certification requirements.
Pool/spa owners on the grounds of accommodation facilities including hotels and motels must ensure the pool:
- Is registered
- Is inspected by a registered inspector
- Has any identified issues fully rectified
- Has a valid pool compliance certificate
- Has a Form 23 supplied to council.
Because accommodation facility managers must ensure their legal obligations are fully met, the friendly team at Pool Compliance Victoria is committed to making the process as easy, efficient and affordable as possible. Our swimming pool inspectors are specifically trained, experienced, qualified and registered to ensure that your accommodation facility’s pools/spas are fully compliant and safe.
