Resuscitation & warning signs
All pools require a Resuscitation Chart/Warning sign to be displayed in a prominent position in the immediate vicinity of the pool.

The following warning statements must be contained within the resuscitation sign:
  • "Young Children should be supervised when using this swimming pool"
  • "Pool gates must be kept closed at all times"
  • "Keep articles, objects and structures at least 900mm clear of the pool fence at all times".

The resuscitation sign:
  • Must be legible from a distance of at least 3 metres; and
  • Must be maintained in a clearly legible condition.

Resuscitation/warning signs can be purchased from most pool supply shops.

Any approved sign erected between 1 September 1995 and 31 August 2008 does not require replacement and may be retained. However, it is recommended that signs more than three years old be replaced, due to changes in best practice resuscitation techniques.
