The City of Gosnells has engaged Royal Life Saving Society WA to assist with pool barrier inspections during November and December.
City staff undertake pool inspections year round, however this year additional assistance has been sought from RLSSWA. As such, pool owners in the City may be contacted by either City staff or RLSSWA representatives in the next few months.
The City is required by the State Government to inspect private pool barriers, such as fencing and gates, every four years.
Effective swimming pool barriers and close adult supervision are essential in keeping children safe around water and reducing the likelihood of drowning. Pool owners are reminded to check their fences and gates regularly.
For information about swimming pool inspections, visit the City’s website at gosnells.wa.gov.au or call 9397 3000.
