Certified Playground Safety Inspections (CPSI)
What is More Important Than Protecting Your Child’s Safety?
Play is important to the overall well-being of children. Taking your child to the playground is a great way to get some exercise and allow him or her to enhance their imagination. Children are being encouraged to get active in their local parks. To facilitate this, many homeowner associations, schools, day care centers and community groups are installing elaborate playground structures to make play as attractive as possible for kids. But is it safe? According to the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission, it is estimated that each year more than 167,000 injuries occur on public playgrounds. Tragically resulting in approximately 6 fatalities annually.
Therefore, inspecting your community’s playground should be a high priority. It is important to utilize a Certified Playground Safety Inspector (CPSI).
