About Cardiopulmonary Resuscitation Signs

Current Pool CPR Sign in Queensland

All Swimming Pools & Spa’s in Queensland Must Display a CPR Sign!

Regulated Swimming Pools in Australia must display a Current Pool CPR sign (Cardiopulmonary Resuscitation) which complies with Guideline 8 – Published by the Australia Resuscitation Council. Signage must be displayed so that it is visible from all areas of the Swimming Pool, at least 300mm x 300mm in size and made of durable material.

Pool Owners with existing signage, which complies with Guideline 7 is acceptable to comply with the Pool Safety Barrier regulations. However, a damaged or unclear CPR sign which complies with the Guideline 7 cannot be replaced with another Guideline 7 CPR sign and must be replaced with an updated Guideline 8 version

Existing signage that complies with the earlier guideline (Guideline 7) is acceptable for use while still readable. However, when CPR signs become illegible, they must be replaced with a sign that is compliant with Guideline 8.

These new changes came into effect on 1st January 2017 and has since been phasing out the Guideline 7 to the newly updated Guideline 8 signage.
