Play Inspection Training

Do you know how to make sure your play area equipment is safe?

Playground managers have a legal and moral responsibility to make sure children using the play area are safe. This training session teaches you how to carry out safety checks and record them so that you can demonstrate your commitment to maintaining safe opportunities for children to play creatively. You will receive template documents, all the latest good practice guidance and take part in a practical session to assess a local facility.

The session will include a classroom element as well as an inspection of a nearby play area. Attendees are recommended to dress appropriately for climbing on play equipment and for weather conditions.
