Pool Safety Inspections prevent child drownings

New pool laws were introduced in Queensland to prevent drownings in pools & spas in December 2010. Drowning is the leading cause of accidental death for children aged 1 to 4. Child drowning statistics for children under 5 from Jan 2004 to May 2010 show 35 toddlers under the age of 5 drowned. It is estimated that Pool Safety Legislation has prevented at least 70 toddler drownings since 1991.
