The Building Code of Australia was updated earlier this year to ensure better safety for children.

The updated Building Code of Australia includes provisions aimed at preventing children from falling through openable windows. 

Breezway has produced a short video describing some of these requirements. The Fall Prevention video can be accessed on the Breezway website or the Breezway YouTube channel. 

Breezway also offers a formal CPD Tutorial (Accredited by AIS) for those who would like to better understand the full extent and the finer details of these new requirements. 

Key learning outcomes of the tutorial include ability to identify situations where fall prevention measures are required by the BCA; ability to list the options to achieve compliance in bedrooms and early childhood centres; ability to list the options to achieve compliance in other rooms; and awareness of testing methodologies to prove compliance.

One CPD Point is offered for a 1-hour presentation.

Altair louvre windows are available from Breezway .
