Playgrounds are an opportunity for children to develop motor, cognitive, perceptual, and social skills as well as provide physical challenges. Unfortunately, playgrounds are often the sites of avoidable injuries that have resulted in serious harm. Many of these unintentional injuries can be easily avoided by certified safety inspection and meeting basic compliance obligations.


In the event of a serious playground injury, fundamental and baseline compliance with the NZS5828 is the first evidence requirement. Owners and operators of play areas bear the burden of proof in the event of a life changing injury or death, failure to identify risk and comply with standards may be cause for negligence, blame and ultimately fault.


A key opportunity for playground injury prevention is comprehensive inspection by certified experts, and ensuring surfacing impact performance.


Whether your play area is old or new, it is important to engage a certified L3 Inspector for assessing safety and compliance which will ensure that any hazards and non-compliance's are identified well before failure and injury.
