WHY ARE PLAYGROUND INSPECTION AND MAINTENANCE IMPORTANT?
Play equipment and surfacing wear with use, climate and abuse. Because of this, they must be inspected on a regular basis. There are many benefits to properly maintaining your equipment:
Timely, routine maintenance is a way of managing risks in a community’s play areas. Protect patrons from costly accidents by demonstrating the community’s standard of care while you lower your liability.
Protect Your Investment
Play structures, safety surfacing, shade, and site development are significant investments for any company or municipality. It simply makes good economic sense to maintain the equipment and extend the life of your organization’s investment.
Improve Children’s Play Experiences
When play equipment is broken or otherwise unusable, children lose out on opportunities for play. That moment of learning with others and fun-filled connection is lost forever. The better maintained the equipment, the better the opportunity that a child’s life is improved through play. Your effort makes the difference!
Promote Community Values
A major source of pride for any community is their well maintained common green space. Taking care of playground, outdoor fitness, dog park equipment and site amenities maintains a beautiful environment and is an expression of your community’s values.
Timely, preventive routine maintenance controls expenses by reducing upkeep and replacement costs, enabling more accurate budgeting
