Playground Issues - Covid 19

As you will be aware, the Covid 19 lockdowns have meant that many sport and play provisions have been closed to the public.

Our staff are fully vaccinated against COVID and test regularly to ensure that all of our customers can feel safe

Across the country we are seeing equipment either fall into a poor condition and in some cases, equipment actually failing resulting in serious injury due to COVID work restrictions.

Before you consider opening or re-opening any provision for young people you must have the equipment and required surfacing inspected to ensure that the resource is 'fit for purpose'.

We have already seen cases where equipment has completely failed due to lack of use and/or maintenance resulting is very serious injuries.

Latest news: London Council fined in excess of £300,000 following the death of a young person on playground equipment that failed. The council had not had the equipment inspected for a long time. 

Do not be caught out!
