BS EN 1176 / 1177 Playground Safety Standards Roadshow
2017/2018 Revisions

The Play Inspection Company, in association with HAGS, are running roadshow events throughout 2018 focusing mainly on the updated EN Standards for Children’s Playground Equipment and surfacing. As part of the event, we will also be focusing on other topical subjects such as timber decay in playground equipment and the updated Six Acre Standard.

These events are aimed at anyone who may be involved in building, purchasing, specifying, designing or inspecting play areas.

With the majority of changes to the Standard already published and soon to be applied, this is your chance to prepare yourself and your organisation for the changes to be introduced. Our events will feature some of the leading voices from the industry including Andy Yates, Jon Dalton & Keith Dalton, who all represent the UK on the SW65 Standards Committees responsible for writing the Standards. Both Jon Dalton & Keith Dalton are also long-standing Board Members & Directors of the RPII (Register of Play Inspectors International) – the organisation that accredits playground inspectors.

Andy, Jon & Keith will discuss the changes to BS EN 1176 / 1177 and the impact that this could have on your business / organisation, as well as providing an insight into other standards that are applicable to other types of play spaces (such as Outdoor Fitness Equipment / Wheeled Sports / Multi Use Games Areas / Parkour) and will also cover some of the most newsworthy topics in the industry today.

The cost of attending the event is £150.00 + VAT per person (£180.00), with lunch and refreshments included in the delegate rate. Courses are expected to run between 10.00am and 4.00pm, with breaks for refreshments and lunch. The Play Inspection Company will issue all delegates with a Certificate of Attendance as well as a free updated pocket guide to the latest EN 1176 Standards, kindly sponsored by HAGS.
