Playground Injuries

Playground injuries are the leading cause of injury to children ages five to 14 in schools.

Lack of supervision is associated with 40 percent of playground injuries. A recent study found that children play without adult supervision more often on school playgrounds (32 percent of the time) than playgrounds in parks (22 percent).


Approximately 58 percent of playground injuries requiring medical attention occur in schools and are most common among girls between five and nine, and boys between 10 and 14.

The most common causes of medical attention from playgrounds is injury suffered from falling. Approximately 70 percent of playground equipment-related injuries involve falls to the surface, this is either onto inadequate surfacing or onto hard objects. The most common injury is  a long-bone fracture (involving arms and legs) and these are most common from upper body, overhead activities like  monkey bars and monorails.
