Pool Safety Inspectors – Did You Know?

There are two types of PSI (Pool Safety Inspector), those that have a condition on their licence stating, Not Permitted to carry out minor repairs on regulated pools and those without such a condition. These PSIs without such a condition can carry out minor repairs to regulated pools.  Pool Safety Inspectors who are not permitted to carry out minor repairs on regulated pools are breaking the law if they even try to adjust the tension on a gate hinge.

The following Link will help in identifying Pool Safety Inspectors with the appropriate qualifications to carry out minor repairs. Once you have located the PSI you wish to check on, look under the View Details link and scan to the bottom to view their Licence Details and check the Conditions for that Licencee:

People seeking Pool Safety Inspection services for their pools and who believe their pool may be in need of extra attention to comply with the new Standards, need to be aware that some PSIs are not permitted to carry out any corrective actions to assist in meeting compliance.

At PBRS, one of our Pool Safety Inspectors has the appropriate qualification, Registered Builder Low-Rise, which allows that Inspector to carry out minor repairs. In most cases, this additional ability to repair the pool barrier components, results in the repairs being conducted at the time of Inspection, which then can eliminate the need for Re-Inspection fees and delays in attaining Certification.

QBCC Update – Changes Effective October 2014

Defective work after Practical Completion

  • Structural Defects (Replaces Cat 1 defects) – e.g. leaking roof, leaking shower, health and safety issue – 6 years + 3 months from practical completion

  • For both Structural and Non-Structural Defects there is an additional 12 months to lodge a notice about the Defect with the QBCC, providing the consumer has advised the contractor in writing.
Deck and Balcony Safety Inspection

‘In recent years a number of deaths and serious injuries have occurred as a result of falls from decks, balconies and windows, or from the collapse of decks and balconies’.

‘If you own a building with a balcony, veranda or deck—whether it is made from timber, metal, concrete or another material—you should ensure it is inspected carefully for decaying timbers, unstable balustrades, corrosion and cracking of concrete’.

Timber decks exposed to weather should be Inspected regularly.  Particularly our Queenslander style of homes here in Brisbane with large decks and verandas, the older decks should be Inspected at least once every two years or as recommended by your licensed Building Inspector.

The older inner suburbs of Brisbane such as Ashgrove, Bardon, Paddington, Red Hill, Auchenflower, Newmarket, Milton, Wilston, Grange, Toowong, Alderley, Ascot, Enoggera, Kelvin Grove, Herston, St Lucia, Toowong, Ascot, Windsor, Clayfield, Bulimba, Hamilton, Morningside, Camp Hill, West End, Bowen Hills, Chelmer, Yeronga, Albion, Nundah, Wavell Heights, Dutton Park, Highgate Hills and Northgate all have those older Queenslander or Ashgrovian builds with large veranda and deck entertainment areas.
