Drowning is one of the leading causes of death in Queensland for children under 5.
Are you aware of the Queensland Pool Safety Laws?
You must comply with the pool safety standard by 30 November 2015, or before if you are selling or leasing your property.
All pools (and spas) in Queensland must be fenced and registered on the pool safety register.
The pool safety register includes a record of pools in Queensland, pool safety certificates issued and a list of all licensed pool safety inspectors.
Queensland's pool safety laws were introduced in 2009 and apply to all pools—new and existing.
