What can be potential hazards of playground equipment?

In social media channels circulate videos, funny for those who watch the video clip, less funny for the affected persons, where we can get an idea of what may happen at playground equipment. These are some of the potential hazards:

  • The achieved speed on a slide exceeds the control.
  • The impact area and the safety zone of a playground facility are not adequate.
  • There are obstacles on the sliding section.
  • Parts of the body or of the clothes may be stuck or pinched, etc.

But can these risks be avoided?

The European safety norm for playgrounds EN 1176 has been developed and introduced in consequence to serious accidents in order to prevent them happening again for the same reasons.

More than regulating the intention is to provide protection for the users while playing. If the playground equipment is designed and produced fulfilling the norm’s safety requirements, many avoidable risks are avoided.

To trust that a playground facility is safe and to prevent nasty surprises, it should be ensured that the playground equipment is certified by an accredited certifying authority.

The certificate documents that the safety requirements have been fulfilled during the manufacturing process.
