A playground should be fun and exciting, providing challenges to children while not exposing them to unacceptable risk. Risk taking is an essential part of children’s development and in the course of play they may be exposed to bumps, bruises or other minor injuries. The aim of playground safety Standards is to prevent serious accidents and to lessen the consequences of occasional mishaps that will inevitable occur in children’s pursuit of expanding their level of competence.
Playground safety should not be taken lightly. Most playground injuries can be prevented or their severity reduced through careful planning, design and maintenance.
At Play Check we take a practical approach in assessing the risks and benefits of play, working closely with designers and playground operators to ensure the right risk/benefit balance is achieved.
Nature play has become increasingly popular in recent years. When designing a nature-based playground why not involve Play Check at design and construction stages to ensure all aspects of risk and safety are covered off, instead of having to tackle costly changes at the other end of the project.
Play Check is also a WALGA preferred supplier, making it even easier for local government in WA to deal with us.
