No matter the season, the importance of pool safety must always be considered all year round. With swimming pools being the leading location for drowning incidents for children aged 0-14 years, it is vital to ensure the pool in your strata property is safe and secure.
Drowning deaths are always preventable, and it all comes down to:
- Recognising hazards – Does your pool have a gate or fence? Is there anything around the pool that could be used to climb the fence? Are all pumps, grates and suctions securely placed?
- Ensuring there is adult supervision available at all times when children are about.
Each state will have specific requirements for pool safety, and regulations may vary from state to state. At Wellman Strata, we look to providing you with the best possible advice to ensuring your pool meets all safety requirements and you are up-to-date with the latest changes made.
