Pool safety inspection software has been developed for use in the Australian State of Queensland following new legislation that requires all pools in the State to be inspected by a qualified inspector. The legislation was an effort by the Government to reduce the number of infant deaths caused by drownings in unsafe pools. The legislation requires all pools to be fenced and gated to meet certain measurement requirements set out in the legislation.
With so many inspections being conducted, pool safety inspection software has increased the number of inspections that can be conducted in a given time period. Inspectors can conduct their inspections on a PDA, smartphone or tablet and the fields on a safety certificate can be automatically populated based on the inspection information.
The pool safety inspection software will list all the legislative safety standards and requirements for pools. If there are any defects in the pool fencing or any items that do not meet the safety standard, the inspector can use the in-built camera to take a photograph and then mark the image with the defect in question. He may also record audio notes which can be attached to the inspection.
