CPR SIGNS

SIGNAGE REQUIREMENTS

When you’re replacing a CPR sign, ensure it:

is attached to the pool’s safety barrier or displayed near the pool, so a person near the pool can see it easily

is at least 300mm x 300mm in size

is made of durable and weatherproof material

includes a prominent statement explaining how to act in an emergency (e.g., call Triple Zero (000), stay with the injured person, provide first aid).

 

CPR SIGNS BOUGHT AND DISPLAYED AFTER 1 JANUARY 2017

From 1 January 2017, any new or replacement CPR signs must show how to perform CPR in line with the technique published in ANZCOR Guideline 8 – Cardiopulmonary Resuscitation (PDF), published by the Australian Resuscitation Council in January 2016.

 

CPR SIGNS BOUGHT AND DISPLAYED BEFORE 1 JANUARY 2017

You can continue to use an existing CPR sign until it becomes illegible if it both:

was purchased and displayed before 1 January 2017

complies with Guideline 7 – Cardiopulmonary Resuscitation, published by the Australian Resuscitation Council in January 2016.

However, once you replace this sign, it must now comply with the requirements mentioned above.
