Keep an eye on your children – playground safety

Safekids recommends you keep an eye on your children in playgrounds to help them play safe.

  • Check that the playground is appropriate for your child's age.
  • Check for hazards (such as broken equipment or glass).
  • Make sure children are dressed correctly and they do not push or shove each other on playground equipment.

The standard for playgrounds is NZS 5828:2004 Playground equipment and surfacing.
