Playground Safety: Keep Your Children

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:

  • Bruises
  • Dislocated bones
  • Concussions / head injuries
  • Broken bones
  • Internal injuries
  • Fractured bones
