Nearly 200,000 injuries that require emergency room treatment occur annually on public playgrounds. These injuries can be prevented with proper playground design and standardized inspection and maintenance program. This continuing education session will highlight the primary causes of playground injuries and discuss the responsibilities owners as well as manufacturers have for providing and maintaining safe playgrounds.
Poor maintenance is the major cause of at least one third of all reported playground injuries.
