Hotel pool safety risks

Swimming pools and spas are a common and popular feature in Hotels throughout Western Australia. They also present a number of unique risks to Hotel guests and staff.

The Royal Life Saving Society WA has conducted over 100 safety assessments on pools in various Hotels, Motels and Resorts. These assessments have given us vital insights into the most comment areas that are likely to require attention to ensure facilities are safe.

These areas include:

  • Security of aquatic areas
  • Depth marking requirements
  • First aid requirements: First aid equipment / Rescue equipment
  • Safety signage
  • Pool test requirements & procedures
  • Chemical storage and handling requirements

If you are unsure whether your facility is meeting the required standards across any of these areas we’d be happy to discuss this with you.
