Northern Beaches Council – Pool safety and first aid recommendations

October 27th, 2019 by ian

Safety on the Northern Beaches is crucial not just on our beaches but also around the home. The Northern Beaches council has strict guidelines for pool safety and recommends first aid and CPR training be current and charts hung for those around water.

Original article published – https://www.northernbeaches.nsw.gov.au/community/safety-and-wellbeing/pool-safety

Home drowning deaths occur year around and it’s every pool owner’s responsibility to make sure pools are safe. Here you’ll find essential information about new swimming pool laws, safety requirements and pool registration. Don’t take chances in and around the pool.

Swimming Pool Registration

Pool and spa owners need to register their pools on the NSW Government online register(Opens in a new window) to avoid fines.

Your pool or spa must comply with all pool safety legal requirements.  You need a Swimming Pool Compliance Certificate to be able to sell or lease your property. Application Form(Opens in a new window)

What if My Pool Doesn’t Meet Standards?

If your pool fails to meet compliance, Council will let you know the work required to gain certification. You’ll be given a certificate of non-compliance which should be provided to your solicitor or conveyancer if you’re selling your property.

Swimming Pool Barriers

Registered compliant pools or spas need a barrier at least 1.2m high with no gaps more than 10cm underneath.

Gates must open outwards and be self-closing and self-latching. Gate latches must be 1.5m above ground level or have a shield.

Boundary fences forming part of the pool barrier must be 1.8 metres high.

Pool Fences are Important

Backyard pool drownings due to faulty pool fencing can be avoided. Keep pool fencing clear and well maintained. Anything potentially climbable, that might serve as a foothold, must be kept at least 900mm clear of fences and gates. Spas not enclosed by a pool barrier must be covered by a child-resistant lockable lid.

Swimming Pool Barrier Inspection Program

Northern Beaches Council has established an inspection program as required under Section 22B of the Swimming Pools Act 1992. The program sets out inspection priorities, fee payment arrangements and the approach to be taken to ensure compliance. 

Council Inspections

Council proactively inspects backyard pools for safety compliance. Find out more about Council’s Barrier Inspection Program(Opens in a new window). Or make use of these checklists(Opens in a new window).

Cardiopulmonary Resuscitation (CPR)

Cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR) is life-saving first aid(Opens in a new window) and an essential skill for backyard pool owners.

CPR resuscitation chart(Opens in a new window) must be displayed within the pool or Spa area.

CPR is a combination of mouth-to-mouth resuscitation and chest compressions delivering oxygen and artificial blood circulation to anyone in cardiac arrest.

Public Swimming Pools

Northern Beaches Council has an effective program of registering and inspecting all public swimming pools and spas. This ensures public health standards of cleanliness and safety are maintained.

This program covers, club, workplace, accommodation guest, school and hospital pools. Under Public Health Regulation 2012, pools posing a public health risk can be closed.

Find more detailed information on pool and spa safety regulations on the NSW Government Fair Trading Website(Opens in a new window).

The case concerned a student who became severely disabled after collapsing in gym class. He sued, arguing his teacher should have done first aid. Germany’s highest criminal court ruled in his favor, but only to a point.

People practice on first aid dummies (picture-alliance/dpa/W. Kumm)

Gym teachers must use first aid in the event of an emergency and they must be up-to-date on techniques, the Federal Court of Justice (BGH) ruled on Thursday.

The case involved a young man who sued the German state of Hesse after he collapsed in gym class and became severely disabled. The state previously argued that the teacher was not liable, but Germany’s highest criminal court disagreed.What the court ruled:

  • Physical education or gym teachers are obligated to carry out first aid “in a timely and proper manner.”
  • The teacher in the case was found to have violated her official duties by not attempting to resuscitate the student.
  • The BGH overturned two lower court decisions that ruled in favor of the state and the teacher.
  • Although the court ruled in the student’s favor, he will have to prove that the lack of first aid caused his disability in order to secure damages.

The right way to administer first aid

In January 2013, an 18-year-old student at a high school in the German city of Wiesbaden suddenly collapsed during a warm-up at his gym class.

The teacher quickly called for an ambulance and positioned the boy on his side. She did not, however, attempt to revive him and CPR was only delivered eight minutes later when the ambulance arrived at the school.

The student, who is now 24-years-old, ended up suffering irreversible brain damage due to a lack of oxygen and is now severely disabled.

He and his family sued the teacher’s employer, the state of Hesse, arguing that the first aid measures were insufficient. They demanded at least €500,000 in pain and suffering damages, €100,000 for material damages as well as a monthly pension of €3,000 as well as a promise that the state of Hesse will pay for future costs.

DETERMINING AMOUNT OF TRAINING – TARGET STUDENT AND COURSE DELIVERY OPTIONS

Student cohort (types of students)

Allens Training Pty Ltd is required to determine the amount of training they provide to each student, with regard to the existing skills, knowledge and experience of the student. This is achieved by identifying the cohort category or the student undertaking the proposed training and also the mode/s of delivery being provided. Skill levels will vary in relation to the type of student or ‘cohort’. 

Allens Training Pty Ltd have identified the cohorts as students new to the training or returning to the industry.

Initial training and modes of delivery (students new to the training)

Initial training is intended for students who have no prior training or experience. For example, job seekers, school leavers, those wanting a change in career etc. 

Where the student cohort consists of new entrants or inexperienced workers, we ensure that we give them the opportunity to fully absorb the required knowledge and to develop skills over time in the different contexts they would experience in the workplace.

This may require a longer time-frame than for those students with significant training/industry experience.

Course times

IMPORTANT INFORMATION TO STUDENTS AS FROM 19/07/2019– Students who do not live in Western Australia or Tasmania are no longer able to complete this training online.

What does competency-based training actually mean? 

A competency-based training environment is centered on demonstrated competence against industry-defined standards of performance. Competency-based training is the concept that individuals learn at different rates as well as through different modes and different environments and that the skills and knowledge that a student has acquired previously are able to be formally recognised.

Amount of training and the AQF volume of learning

The AQF Volume of Learning describes how long a student, who does not hold any competencies identified in the qualification, would normally take to develop all of the required skills and knowledge at that qualification level. The amount of training comprises the formal learning activities that are provided to a student to enable them to meet the requirements of each training product and gain the skills and knowledge specified in the relevant training product.

Recognition or any prior learning or previous courses 

Upon enrolment, you are given the opportunity to upload your previous certificate and based on that evidence, the course can be modified based on your previous knowledge. There is a currency requirement to be able to demonstrate skills such as using PPE.

We need to identify any support you require to complete this course 

Upon enrolment, we will give you an opportunity to provide information on your language, literacy and numeracy skills to complete this course. There is also the opportunity to provide details and communicate any special needs or support requirements you may have.  Assistance can be sought from our student support officer at Allens Training Pty Ltd by phoning 1300 559 064.

We provide equitable access to all required educational and support services, so that no student is disadvantaged to be able to enroll into this course regardless of their mode of study or location. Students can organise to meet with their trainer on a one-to-one basis for additional support, plus email and phone contact.

It’s important to note that there is a physical requirement to complete correctly fitting PPE.

Unique Student Identifier (USI)      

Completing any vocational education course in Australia, it is a requirement for you to obtain and supply a USI. This is obtainable from usi.gov.au If a USI is not supplied and verified with usi.gov.au a certificate cannot be issued to you.

If you are under 18 years of age

It is a requirement that parental/guardian consent is obtained for students under the age of 18 to be able to participate in a course.  The form for this can be found here.

Course fees

This course may be delivered by way of partnership arrangements with your local trainer. The course fee will be paid direct to the trainer (the partner organisation).

Reading – in order to read and understand signs, workplace forms, and instructions and to make accurate reports.

Writing – in order to record details and to make reports using handwritten skills and computer skills

Reasonable adjustment explained

Reasonable adjustment refers to flexibility in assessment approaches to account for individual learning needs, while still adhering to the assessment requirements of the relevant training package or VET accredited course. Whilst reasonable adjustments can be made in terms of the way in which evidence of performance is gathered, the evidence criteria for making competent/not yet competent decisions should not be altered in any way.

If a student meets essential entry requirements, the RTO must endeavour to make ‘reasonable adjustments’ necessary for them to complete their course work or demonstrate competency. This may include adjusting the physical environment, student learning materials or the manner that a theory test is completed. In most situations, a student with a disability will be able to tell the RTO what he or she needs to be able to study. If necessary, the RTO should also seek advice from disability areas within government departments or organisations that represent or provide services to people with a disability.

Adjustments may include:

Modifying educational premises. For example, making ramps, modifying toilets and ensuring that classes are in rooms accessible to the person with a disability.

Modifying or providing equipment. For example, lowering lab benches, enlarging computer screens, providing specific computer software or an audio loop system.

Changing assessment procedures. For example, allowing for alternative examination methods such as oral exams, or allowing additional time for someone else to write an exam for a person with a disability.

Changing course delivery. For example, providing study notes or research materials in different formats or providing a sign language interpreter for a person who is hearing impaired.

Please note that in some Training Packages, first aid and CPR training for example, there are mandatory skills that cannot be modified as a reasonable adjustment. The student is required to complete 2 minutes of adult CPR on a manikin on the floor. There is no room for reasonable adjustment as it is stated as what is required in the Training Package.
