Drowning is one of the major causes of unintentional death for Australian children, with the home environment being the most common location where toddler drowning incidents occur.
Do you know what water safety hazards exist in and around your home?
Kidsafe Victoria’s Home Water Safety Audit can help you to identify any possible water hazards around your home. The audit will take approximately 5 minutes to complete – we recommend doing this on a tablet device if you have one so that you can visit each area of your house while answering the audit questions.
On completion of the audit, you will receive a set of tailored action items – completing these will assist you to reduce the risk posed by water safety hazards around your home. The action item list will also be sent to your email address*.
We recommend all parents, grandparents or carers of children complete the audit regularly, to continually ensure that children are protected from any water hazards.

*An email address is required to register for the Home Water Safety Audit. Your email address will only be used to send your list of action items – it will not be used for any other purpose unless you choose to be added to Kidsafe Victoria’s mailing list.
Data collected from the audit will be used to inform Kidsafe Victoria’s future water safety education campaigns (all responses will remain anonymous).
The Home Water Safety Audit is brought to you as part of the Play it Safe by the Water Campaign
