Help reduce the risk of hazardous situations in playgrounds with Softfall Testing’s team of experienced certified inspectors.
Community awareness of safety has increased dramatically over the past few years, and outdoor play areas and playground equipment are now under greater scrutiny. Therefore, the management of risk is a high priority for all playground stakeholders.
Inspections are often the first line of defence against hazardous situations and have the potential of converting into a serious issue. This scars the child as well as their parents for a long time and creates a higher legal risk for the playground owners.
How to prevent these situations from happening?
- Follow regulatory practices around the Australian Standards which help mitigate risks and create a safe play environment
- Engage a certified playground inspector to carry all inspections compliant with the Australian standards
- Have regular routine, operational and comprehensive inspections
- Have a post-installation inspection
Softfall Testing helps increase risk mitigation by having their team of experienced certified inspectors inspect your playgrounds. Utilising best industry practices, Softfall Testing’s team has major advantages – experience and in-depth data reporting. This allows for coherent reporting procedures throughout your inspections and provides easy to use, readable and actionable reports. It also becomes a powerful risk mitigating tool and provides you concrete evidence of faulty equipment’s referenced to the risk matrix.
Here is feedback that Softfall Testing received from the councils they worked with in South Australia:
“The team at Softfall Testing were professional and helped us do a full inspection of 260 playgrounds. Not only that, their reports and expertise helped us put forward a plan and secure additional funding for the play spaces. We are 100 percent satisfied with the results and would recommend them to anybody looking to do playground inspections.”
