Playgrounds, surfaces and outdoor play equipment offer kids fresh air, friends, and exercise while also tiring them out for their parents.
Therefore it is important to make sure that damaged equipment, improper surfaces, don’t cause injury.
The Irish Play Safety Forum has shown that out of 5,500 incidents reported to a local authority over the last 20 years, 29 occurred in playgrounds and 14 resulted in claims.
A ’duty of care’ which may reduce the likelihood of serious accidents and claims is essential and this is why playground maintenance and repair contracts should be in place to ensure you don’t have any issues.
