Playground safety requirements

The standard for playground equipment is EN 1176, which should be referenced along with national laws and local regulations.

Those responsible for safety inspection of play equipment must have an in-depth understanding of the standards to ensure compliance is fully considered.

How to implement an inspection and maintenance regime

All play equipment installed in public areas should be inspected and maintained in accordance with European Standards recommendations for the routine and operational inspection and maintenance of playground equipment: EN1176-7.

The HAGS product warranties are only valid if the inspections and maintenance in this document are followed.

The frequency of inspection will vary with the type of equipment/materials used and other factors e.g.: heavy use, levels of vandalism, climate conditions, air pollution, age of equipment.

The document below provides a detailed checklist for each type of inspection and equipment.
