Playgrounds, are outdoor or indoor playing space and equipment that offer kids fun, fresh air, friends, happiness and exercise. So it’s important for adults-parents to make sure that faulty equipment, improper surfaces, and careless behavior don’t ruin the fun and health for their kids.
In recent years, it is estimated that there were more than 200,000 injuries annually on public playgrounds that required emergency treatment. Many of these accidents could have been prevented with the proper inspection and supervision.
You can make the playground entertaining and safe for your kids by checking the playing area and equipment for potential hazards and following some simple safety guidelines. Teaching kids how to play safely is important: If they know the rules of the playground, they’re less likely to get hurt.
Kids should always have adult supervision on the playground. Adult supervision can help prevent injuries by making sure kids properly use playground equipment and don’t engage in unsafe behavior around it. If an injury does occur, an adult can assist the child and administer any needed first aid right away. Play areas should designed to allow an adult to clearly see kids while they’re playing on all the equipment.
