Our Inspections cover the following facility types: Playgrounds, Multi-Use Games Areas, Outdoor Fitness Areas, Skate Parks, Parkour Areas and Ancillary Items.
An Operational Inspection is a detailed inspection to check the operation and stability of the equipment, especially for any wear. This inspection should be every 1 to 3 months, or as indicated by the manufacturer’s instructions.
Examples of operational inspection points are cleanliness, equipment ground clearances, ground surface finishes, exposed foundations, sharp edges, missing parts, excessive wear (of moving parts) and structural integrity.
An Annual inspection involves a more detailed check and covers a wide range of outdoor play safety issues. This inspection looks at vandalism, minor and major wear, long-term structural problems, changes in Standards compliance, design practices, risk assessments etc. Annual playground inspections should be carried out by a specialist who has no affiliation with the playground operator or manager, ensuring that the subsequent written report is entirely independent.
A Post Installation Inspection is carried out by an annual inspector and is an independent assessment of newly installed equipment, to check whether it meets the required safety standards.
