Playground Advisory and Inspection Services
Kidsafe Qld is committed to increasing safety in play environments and to promoting the benefits of play for children.
There are Australian Standards covering playgrounds, play equipment, trampolines and indoor playgrounds. All playgrounds must meet these standards.
Any person or organisation considering designing, building, importing or setting up a playground - indoor or out -should download the standards relating to playgrounds from SAI global. There are rules about soft fall and heights of equipment and inspections etc that you must know and comply with.
You will also need a Certificate of Compliance for your playground. This means compliance to the Australian Playground Standards. You might like to order this Guide to Playground Standards which will help you navigate your way through the Standards.
Simple information can be provided by phone and email or a Playground Consultant can visit your playground to discuss safety and design ideas to enhance children’s play and learning. Email firstname.lastname@example.org
