Pool CPR Resuscitation Signage -New laws effective Jan 2017

CPR Resuscitation Signs are a subject close to my heart. A new law from the QBCC effective January 2017 states that all newly erected/replaced pool CPR signs must comply with the ANZCOR Guideline 8 recommendations. The 2 main new points for the sign is it instructs that compressions precede rescue breaths And it be administered at 100-120 compressions per minute.

Having scoured far and wide for a good CPR Resuscitation Sign, three things came to my attention. 1) Not all signs being sold complied with the new pool laws, 2) it was better to improve on the efforts of other signs with the help of a safety sign supplier here in Australia, and 3) There appeared to be wasted space on existing signs.

One of the criteria I was looking for was clear instruction on how to perform CPR on children under 1 year of age. Another one was removing any ambiguity in the wording of instructions, for example, simply telling someone to place the patient into the recovery position might not be sufficient information for a novice or those doing their utmost in a distressing situation. Combine the right words with an accompanying picture and you have a much better chance of conveying the actions required.

So I teamed up with Discount Safety Signs Australia (DSSA) to get the formula right. The Sales Manager, Elliot Scarpellino, was very helpful. Together we developed a new CPR sign. The signs are a competitive price and available in different sizes and materials. Just for your reference, I accept/receive no monetary gain from any of this, just the satisfaction of having contributed to something as important as this. View the DSSA CPR Pool Sign. You will be pleasantly surprised at how well it conveys the instructions. Pool CPR Signs must be a minimum of 300mm x 300mm. Personally, I like the 600mm x 450mm size. I carry them with me for the occasions when a client needs one. And I only make a very small profit on them. It’s a service that I provide my clients.
