With spring season just around the corner, many people are getting excited
about the warmer weather. With warmer weather comes the ability to easily
enjoy the outdoors with friends and family. For those with children, spring
season can mean afternoons and weekends at the park with their kids.
While a park can be an enjoyable place for parents and their children to
spend time together, these places, like most, are not free of dangers.
In fact, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention,
playground hazards result in a countless number of injuries each year
and leave nearly 200,000 young children under 14 years old hospitalized
in emergency rooms.
For this reason, parents should do their part to protect their children
from injury by closely inspecting playground equipment and nearby surfaces
for hazardous factors before their children begin to play. Parents should
be sure to keep an eye out for the following dangers, which contribute
to numerous playground injuries each year:
- Extremely weakened or withered equipment
- Unfastened screws and loose bolts
- Sharp edges that can cause lacerations
- Protruding screws and nails
- Slippery services
- Frailed or split ropes
Common Injuries Cause by Defective Playground Equipment
Although some injuries caused by playground equipment are minor, some can
be extremely damaging. In fact, some common injuries that occur due to
defective playground equipment include:
- Dislocated bones
- Concussions / head injuries
- Broken bones
- Internal injuries
- Fractured bones
