Responsible playground care consists of a comprehensive audit, inspections at regular intervals, routine maintenance and proper record keeping. Our certified inspectors are trained in all aspects of playground inspection.
A playground cannot be assumed to be compliant based upon its age or condition of its warranty. An inspection by a third party playground inspector is the best way for you to verify an installation has been done correctly. In a court of law a report and compliance certificate by an independent third party means a lot more than the installer saying, “looks good to me”, assuming they are still in business. As the owner operator routine inspections by an independent third party provides you with a layer of insulation from litigation.
The Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) guidelines and the standards set by the American Society of Testing and Materials (ASTM) are used by our inspectors to identify hazards. We can identify deficiencies before they result in injuries.
Between 2001 and 2008 an average of 218,851 preschool and elementary school children per year received injuries on playgrounds that resulted in emergency room treatment.
Roughly 79% of these injuries are caused by falls to the surface. This makes the playground surface a priority and your most important single investment.
Inspector Playground is fully trained, equipped and insured. We inspect all features of your facility.
The most recent ADA Guidelines were signed into law in September 2010 and compliance is required by March 2012.
