Home Pool Inspections

We are now able to offer home pool inspections in South Australia! Our pool inspectors will ensure compliance with the Australian Standards for Pool Safety – safety barriers and the location of safety barriers.

Inland Waterways

The South Australia river system is one of the top 10 black spot locations in Australia for drowning deaths and contributes to the recent finding that over 25% of drowning deaths occur in rivers, creeks and streams.
In partnership with state and territory organisations RLSS-SA will study key areas including, The Murray lands and Riverland waterways for initiatives and action plans to identify and implement strategies for prevention's in our black spot areas.
