PLAYGROUND MAINTENANCE

According to the US Consumer Products Safety Commission, 200,000 children are treated annually for playground accidents. The National Playground Safety Institute of the National Recreation and Parks Association attributes 40% of those accidents to poor playground maintenance. By educating maintenance staff and administrators on issues and procedures unique to public playground and areas creates safer play environments for our children.
