Question

How can I keep my child safe on the playground?

Answer

To keep your child safe on the playground make sure the equipment is safe and that it has been installed correctly. Equipment should be the right size for your child, and there should not be any moving parts that might pinch or trap any body part. Having a surface underneath the equipment will absorb impact when children land on it is the best way to prevent serious injuries.
