Sports equipment and school playground safety inspections

With so many children in your care, school playground safety and the assessment and maintenance of play and sports equipment is an essential factor in keeping those in your charge safe from harm. While the number of children attending a school can vary, there’s no doubt about it that your facilities will be well and regularly used – which in turn can lead to damage and wear that can put users at risk should these issues go unidentified.

In addition to your responsibilities for pupils’ safety, headteachers, governors and site managers also need to satisfy the requirements of their insurers, while also adhering to legislation surrounding risk assessments and the ‘best practice’ advice of the Health and Safety Executive.


Our comprehensive sports, play areas, equipment and school playground safety services give you the confidence to let children enjoy these vital aspects of their education, knowing that you’ve done everything you can to protect them from potential hazards.
