While you can’t protect children from every risk on the playground, there is a lot you can do to reduce the risk of injury.
Playground safety surfaces are evaluated according to SGS, one of the standard that applies to the impact-absorbing properties of the surface. It is important to note that the current standards require safety surfaces to be rated to protect children who fall from the height of playground equipment platforms.
Children naturally take risks on the playground, and inevitably some will fall from a height above the platform. This means it might be wise to consider increasing fall protection to protect children falling from these higher areas.
