Pool Safety Qld

Between 1 January 2004 and 18 May 2010, 35 children under five years of age drowned in Queensland's residential swimming pools, as well as two drownings in wading pools and one in a home-made pool.

The Queensland Government has introduced Australia's toughest new pool safety laws as a result of the most comprehensive review of Queensland's swimming pool safety laws in nearly 20 years.

The new pool safety laws aim to further reduce the incidences of drowning and serious immersion injuries of young children in swimming pools.
