Collaborating with Playground123, Softfall Testing is the foremost step in protecting your children against playground falls.
As directed by the Australian Standards, it is crucial for all playground operators to have a post-install inspection, routine, operational and comprehensive inspection to validate the quality of softfall and prevent injuries due to falls. Equipment inspections/checks such as fall zones, critical fall height, free fall height and finger entrapment checks, and asset numbers are essential aspects to consider for playground inspections.
You get what you pay for! Basic excel spreadsheet reports do not fulfil the requirement under the standards for reporting; these reports need to be detailed in the event they are called upon in the event of an injury. Having the excel format certainly helps as an asset management side. However, a comprehensive report identifying any issues needs to accompany any excel spreadsheets.
It takes a lot of effort and admin time in segregating and categorizing this data so that the stakeholder can make heads of it. This data should represent your equipment’s lifespan, wear, and tear, highlight maintenance, and risk assessment issues, and estimate the repairs to assist you in making the best decisions to safeguard your asset – the playground and the playground users. Once again, these maintenance costs outweigh any potential litigation costs and, more importantly, prevent preventable injuries to children. Additionally, compliance with the Australian Standards is a must. This is where sister company Playground123 came up with a digital solution to warrant all of this and reduce your liabilities.
Playground123 is a SaaS platform that allows the auditor to collect-store-create meaningful inspections in real-time. Based on Australian Standards, It also enables them to send and receive smart, coherent reports to their contractors. This reduces admin time, management time and operational expenses. It is an efficient asset management tool that utilizes the principle of Identify-Manage-eliminate to ensure the effective use of technology.
