The Playground Company work in conjunction with RoSPA to provide inspections on new or existing play equipment and safety surfacing. Playground inspections offer you peace of mind. Furthermore, they confirm that any new or existing playground equipment has been installed correctly. Alongside this, it ensures that installation meets modern standards.
RoSPA offer post installation inspections and 6 monthly or 12 monthly playground inspections. The British and European safety standard BS EN1176 and the Health and Safety Executive strongly recommend that all play areas have at least one inspection every year from an independent suitably qualified body such as RoSPA.

Play Area Safety Information:
Most of all, safety is pivotal. After installation, it is advisable that a regular maintenance plan keeps the play area thoroughly clean and in good repair.
During the time that your playground inspection is taking place you are able to request a Routine Inspection Checklist. This will offer you a specific list of items that should be regularly checked. This has elements that need checking weekly, monthly or quarterly.
Working with this list not only offers confidence to you but it also offers confirmation that you are complying with your legal ‘duty of care’.
We aim to offer individuals as much detail as possible about safety and securing their play areas. Consequently, our well informed staff are able to offer valuable detail and will support any concerns or enquiries that you may have.
It may be that you are looking for help with other safety services. Inspections are there to ensure that “they are as safe as they need to be, not as safe as possible.”
Call us today if you would like to seek advice on:
- Risk assessments
- Impact testing
- Checking plans
- Safety for water play areas
This list of options is comprehensive and inclusive of all of the play equipment and play areas that we install. We are working hard to set higher standards in our field and will always take the time to discuss this with you.
