“Swimming pools should be fun. However, drowning is one of the leading causes of death in Queensland for children under the age of five years old. Supervising young children, teaching them to swim and having effective pool fencing can save lives.” http://www.qbcc.qld.gov.au/child-safety-pools
Australian Pool Fencing Inspections has been operating on the Gold Coast since the inception of the new Pool Safety Legislation and offers its customers a premium service.
Our Inspectors are fully accredited by the QBCC and undergo annual Continuing Professional Development.
The Queensland Pool Safety Regulations were established in December 2010 to help prevent drowning and serious water immersion incidents sustained by children under 5 years in swimming pools.
There is no substitute for supervision BUT swimming pool related tragedies regarding young children can be minimized. Having your pool inspected and obtaining a Pool Safety Certificate (Form 23) will ensure that your property is providing the best possible protection against unnecessary and avoidable deaths.
The Queensland Injury Surveillance Unit estimates that for every 1 child that drowns 14 are taken to Emergency Departments and 4 of those are admitted to hospital.
For every young child that drowns in a pool, approximately five are hospitalised due to immersion injuries, some of whom will suffer permanent brain damage.
