Tips to Playground Safety:

  • Make sure the play area has a safe surface in case of falls. The ideal surfaces are made of rubber, wood chips, sand or synthetic turf. Hard surfaces such as concrete make the impact of falls more dangerous.
  • Make sure the playground equipment has been maintained and inspected. If something seems broken or out of place leave the area and notify the responsible individual(s).
  • Make sure the equipment is age appropriate and keep children of different age groups separated.
  • Make sure the playground equipment is being used properly.
  • Supervise your children at all times. Make sure they do not exhibit unsafe or inappropriate behaviors such as running, pushing or shoving.
  • Do not allow a child to wear jewelry, drawstrings, scarves or any other strangulation hazard.
