PlaySafe, LLC is committed to playground safety.
PlaySafe, LLC's goals, when working with public agencies, are to help administrators and maintenance crews design, purchase and install the safest playground equipment to meet the children’s needs. Often times, we work with playground equipment vendors to insure that the best price possible is achieved. For instance, PlaySafe, LLC was able to work with one playground equipment vendor and offer a 46% discount to Santa Fe Public Schools, NM.
PlaySafe, LLC can evaluate your playgrounds, develop a plan to make them safer, make any repairs that are needed, and help you acquire funding to build new playgrounds. When your playgrounds meet or exceed national standards, we can provide training for ongoing maintenance.
Playground Safety Audits:
PlaySafe, LLC can conduct an inventory and audit of the playground equipment at your agencies’sites. ASTM/CPSC requirements that would require the disassembling or alternating of the equipment/footings (for example Structural Integrity and Stability) are not tested. A team of National Parks and Recreation Certified Playground Safety Inspectors will conduct the audit. We will produce an inventory of the equipment and conduct an audit of the equipment to determine compliance with the current version of the American Society for Testing and Materials F1487 (ASTM), the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA), and the United States Consumer Product Safety Commissions (CPSC) “Handbook for Public Playground Safety” Publication Number 325.With more than 70% of accidents occurring with falls to surfacing, the importance of proper surfacing cannot be overstated. These injuries occur on both new and existing surfaces. We believe that a complete audit of a playground should include a test of the surfacing material(s). For this reason, PlaySafe, LLC has purchased, and many of our staff are trained on, an ASTM F1292 Standards Committee approved Free Fall Surface Testing System. This testing system enables PlaySafe, LLC to examine your surfacing on-site to detect whether it complies with the ASTM 1292. A point of clarification: The ASTM F1487 provides much more detailed information on Fall Height measurements then the CPSC document. PlaySafe, LLC uses the ASTM document to identify
