Playground Safety

Playground Safety

Each year, over 200,000 preschool and elementary age children receive emergency care for injuries sustained on playgrounds. IEA consultants base their assessments on the most up-to-date standards develped by the Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) and the American Society for Testing and Materials (ASTM). Playgrounds and their equipment can be made entertaining and safe for children by implementing maintenance and safety programs with the help of the experienced consultants at the Institute for Environmental Assessment, Inc. (IEA).
