Did you know that drowning is a leading cause of accidental death in very young children who lack the cognitive and water skills to deal with the danger?
With over 300,000 backyard pools in NSW, swimming pool safety is a very important issue that affects the whole community.
In 2012, a comprehensive review of the Swimming Pools Act 1992 was finalised. This review identified a number of amendments designed to enhance the safety of children under the age of five years around private (‘backyard’) swimming pools in NSW.
What you need to know as a swimming pool owner:
The Swimming Pools Amendment Act 2012 commenced on 29 October 2012 and makes a number of amendments to the Pools Act 1992
- Swimming pool owners will be required to register their swimming pools on an online register, which is to be provided by the NSW State Government; coming online by 29 April 2013 . By registering pool owners are stating that their pool fence complies with all safety standards and regulations. Are you certain that yours does?
- There is a penalty for owners who fail to register a pool.
