How to Keep Your Kids Safe in Playgrounds

 

Every parent must actively keep an eye on their children in the playground. It will not be difficult - they're still bothering you to watch them when they climb, jump and swings.

Check out the playgrounds where your children play. Look for hazards such as rusty or damaged racks and dangerous surfaces. Report all dangers to the school or the local authority that the playground sorts.

Teach children that it can be dangerous to push, puff or leap on the playground. 
Dress them appropriately to the playground. Remove necklaces, handbags, scarves or clothes with running nails that may cling to the play strings and stifle the child. Even helmets can be dangerous in the playground, so save them to the bikes.

Small children play differently than big children. It is important that suck kids have a separate play area and specially for children under five. Make sure children use age-matching playgrounds. Choose the right play area based on your child's age. There should be well-kept separate play areas for children under five.

For children who are learning to walk, the play area should have surfaces that are smooth and easy to walk on. If your child is reasonably good at lifting his head and can stand up with support (usually about 9 months of age), try the baby cheeks (bucket-shape).

Ensure that there are safe surfaces under and around the leg stands avoid playgrounds with non-shock absorbing surfaces such as asphalt, cement, grass, soil or gravel.

Recommended surface materials include: sand, pearl stone, wood shavings, bedding materials and rubber pavers. Rubber mats, synthetic grass and other artificial materials are also safe surfaces and require less maintenance.

The surface material must be at least 36 cm deep and extend at least 2 meters in all directions around the leg stands. Depending on the height of the racks, it may be necessary for the surface to go further than 2 meters.

For swings, make sure that the surfaces both front and back extend twice as far as the rock is high. So if the top of the rocking rack is 3 meters high, the surface must reach 3 meters.

Make sure that playgrounds are inspected and maintained by qualified persons

Check out the school and kindergarten to make sure they have age-old playgrounds with well-maintained playgrounds.

If there are any dangers on public playgrounds or playgrounds in the background, report immediately and do not let children use the equipment until it is safe.

Report all security hazards to the organization responsible for the site (eg school, authorities or the city council).
