Playground safety is no accident.
Challenging and inspirational play environments impact a child’s development physically, intellectually, socially, cognitively,
and emotionally. Ensuring a safe play environment through regular inspections and maintenance can impact everyone’s peace of mind.

Who needs yearly inspections and a documented maintenance program?

School Districts, Private Schools, and Churches
Playgrounds are some of the most heavily used environments not only during school hours but also after hours when they can serve as a community park.  Accidents, injuries, and vandalism may put the owner at risk.

Parks and Recreation
Community use of unsupervised equipment is a critical reason the equipment and surrounding play area need to be maintained and kept up-to-date with the most recent federal guidelines (ASTM) and recommendations (CPSC).
