Playground Safety Tips

1. Watch out for open "S" hooks, protruding bolt ends or screws, loose nuts, or broken, sharp, or rusty parts.

2. Inspect the surface below the playground equipment, is there a safe material like a safety mat or shredded rubber, woodchips, or sand?  How deep is the materal, if it is shredded rubber, woodchips or sand, this should be at least 9 inches deep. 

3. Is the playground equipement a safe distance (at least six feet) from walls, fences, trees or other stationary objects and dangers.

4. In summer months, check the temperature of the equipment, make sure that metal slides are cool enough.

5. Is the area safe?  Are there strangers around? Parents should supervise children at all times, even when children go to the bathroom.
