Safety Compliance

Certification of Compliance

Safety is our Number 1 priority.

Obviously accidents can happen when children play but minor bumps and bruises are sometimes part of a healthy and robust play time. We want every child to go home happy, invigorated, a little bit tired maybe, but mainly safe & well. So we take every step within our means to make sure of that.

Australia has one of the best sets of safety standards in the world around play. Over the years the safety standards have been improved to ensure playground design in Australia allows enough challenge and foreseeable risk (as opposed to unforeseeable hazards) so that children can experiment with experiences in play without being in danger of serious injury.

A big part of safety is regular checking so make sure this is part of your risk management plan. If you need help with implementing a regular safety audit plan we will assist you with the names of reputable companies who can do this for you.
