CPR signs for new pools must now meet ANZCOR Guideline 8 as shown in the flowchart below.
Signs that are already installed and comply with the current legislation do not need to be updated until they become illegible.
Under the Building Regulation, the sign must also:
a) be attached to the barrier for the pool, or displayed near the pool so that the sign is conspicuous and easily visible to anyone near the pool; and
b) be at least 300 x 300mm in size; and
c) be made of durable and weatherproof material; and
d) include a statement that is prominent on the sign explaining to anyone reading the sign how to act in an emergency, including for example, telephoning for an ambulance, staying with the injured person, calling for help and providing first aid; and
Example of what sign must state: “In an emergency phone 000 and ask for ambulance. Stay with injured person, call for help and resuscitate.
e) each diagram or letter on the sign must be durable, legible and clearly visible.
