The Swimming Pool Barrier Safety Laws

The recent new swimming pool barrier standard was designed to increase pool safety and simplify pool safety laws, which previously included 11 different safety standards.

Drowning is one of the leading causes of death in Queensland for children under five, and effective fencing and associated safety measures, along with supervision and learning to swim can save lives.

The new standard covers such things as the height and strength of barriers, mandatory non-climbable areas, gate-latching requirements, preventing direct access from a building into a pool area and compliant CPR signs.

The standard applies to new and existing pools in houses, unit complexes, hotels, motels, backpacker accommodation, caravan parks and mobile van parks.
