Cairns Pool Safety Inspections

Legislation introduced in 2010 stipulates that regulated pools on properties where there is a house, townhouse, unit, hotel, motel, backpacker hostel or caravan park, must comply with the pool safety standard (LINK) by 30 November 2015, or earlier if the property is sold or leased.

The laws affect new and existing pools and hope to reduce the incidences of drowning and serious immersion injuries involving young children in swimming pools.

Source: National Drowning Report 2013, Royal Life Saving Society – Australia. Instances of drowning deaths of children of 0-4 years of age by place, 2012/2013, 10 year average.

The graph illustrates that swimming pools continue to account for the largest proportion of drowning deaths in children between the ages of 0-4. Swimming pools represent 61% of all drowning deaths within this age group and 56% in children aged 5-14 years old.

Don’t let a member of your family become a statistic.

Is your swimming pool a safe place for your child? Is your pool compliant with the latest laws and regulations? Do your pool barriers, gates and fences conform to the latest legislation?

The Royal Life Saving Society report that most of the homes, in which a child below the age of 5 drowned, had fencing which was insufficient, inadequately maintained or used unsuitably.

Protect your family by following the ‘ABC of pool safety’ — Always supervise children near a pool, Begin swimming lessons for your children, and Close the pool gate and keep your fence maintained (Queensland Pool Safety Laws, Department of Housing and Public Works)
