Inspections

Safety Inspections are an efficient and cost effective approach to maintain the integrity and safety of your playground equipment. Regular and continual inspections help identify potential hazards and safety concerns.  All safety inspections our in accordance with ASTM F1487: Standard Consumer Safety Performance Specification for Playground Equipment for Public Use and The United States Consumer Product Safety Commission Handbook for Public Playground Safety.

Audit & Inspection Scope

Our playground inspectors examine every piece of equipment, your playground surfacing, the playground borders, and any other item found in the play area. The inspectors do what kids do best: climb, pull, jump, and crawl all over (and under) the play equipment, giving it the same rigorous physical pressure that it receives every day.

Inspectors take careful measurements and photos, to compare the condition of the equipment with the prevailing CPSC and ASTM safety standards.
