Playground inspection, playground safety and playground testing according to SN EN 1176.

Through play, children learn to know, improve and develop their physical abilities, to assess risks and to consciously take or refrain from taking them. The task of a playground is to make this possible in a nice way, in a protected setting. It is the duty of the owner to ensure the necessary safety.

It goes without saying that accidents on playgrounds should be avoided as far as possible. For children, however, a minor pain experienced - such as in the case of minor accidents - is sometimes an important learning aid and usually justifiable; this includes small bruises, contusions or broken limbs. In this way, children develop their self-protection behaviour at an early age and learn to classify dangers correctly. From a safety point of view, it becomes questionable when children are unable to recognise a danger. This is called "incalculable" risks. This includes, for example, hidden dangers that are due to technical defects.

Since 1998, there has been a binding safety standard for public playgrounds. Public means all facilities that are freely accessible for the most part. The primary aim is to prevent accidents on playgrounds that lead to serious and permanent damage.

Professional playground inspections ensure playground safety for children. Accidents on playgrounds often do not occur due to children's misjudgement; most playground accidents happen mainly due to insufficient fall protection or failure to maintain safety distances between playground equipment. Technical defects, catching points or abrasion on the equipment also endanger safety on playgrounds and thus the safety of children.

Our playground safety experts

We will be happy to advise you and draw up a written inventory for your playground in the form of an annual main inspection.

This includes a risk analysis of the existing defects and other possible danger spots. We will be happy to provide you with a non-binding offer free of charge. If you send us 2 to 3 pictures of the playground for this purpose, we can better estimate the costs in advance.

The standard specifies four different types of inspection. These differ both in the frequency with which they are carried out and in the required competence of the inspector.
