Here are some tips to get your playground ready for the warmer months ahead:
Don’t leave it too late, start preparing early so that your playground equipment is safe and ready at the first sign of sunshine.
Inspect your playground
A playground inspection forms a very important link between you, the user and the safety of your play area. A regular inspection can also reduce maintenance costs in the long run. Make sure that your inspection is carried out by a qualified RPII Inspector to ensure that your play equipment meets the current safety standards BS EN1176.
Carry out your own weekly checks on your play equipment throughout spring and summer to make sure your equipment remains safe and to keep maintenance costs down.

They will then spend 1 – 2 hours showing you exactly what you need to do, so if you’re not too sure how to look after your play area then this is perfect to give you some helpful advice.
