The playground will be evaluated with the prevailing guidelines issued by the American Society for the Testing Materials (ASTM) and the U.S. Consumer Products Safety Commission’s (CPSC) “Handbook for Public Playground Safety.” Our playground inspectors examine every piece of equipment, your playground surfacing, the playground borders, and any other item found in the play area. A written report of the findings and the recommendations of measures to be taken for areas of concern on the playground can be provided.

It is vital to maintain playground equipment and safety surfacing so that it is kept in optimum condition. Our staff, consultants and playground installers are certified playground safety inspectors (CPSI) and are available to help you with an effective playground maintenance program.

It is important to conduct periodic safety and maintenance inspections on your playground and should generally include at minimum the following points:

• Appropriate impact attenuating safety surfacing material must be maintained under and around all playground equipment.

• Check, replace and/or tighten all bolts, hardware, and fittings.

• Replace any moving parts such as ropes, chains, swing hangers, s hooks, swivels, etc. if showing excessive wear or damage.
