Play Services Ireland specialise in conducting Playgroung Inspections, Training and Maintenance throughout the UK and Ireland. We have an great relationship with many Councils large & small with whom we have provided a professional and effecient service.
In recent years curriculum demands, funding availability, teachers and PTA’s combined, have seen the number of outdoor fixed equipped play areas and trim trails increase. Research suggests however that many schools are unaware of the complexities and requirements involved in both the inspections and ongoing maintenance of their substantial playground investment.
Subsequently a number of schools have opened facilities which are being used by school children without the school having conducted a post installation inspection or planned annual inspections. Having these inspections completed and all appropriate paperwork in place could help your school defend an injury claim in court or more importantly save a child’s life.
As with schools there has been a marked increase in play provision in nursery facilities both private and public throughout the UK and Ireland traditionally these are facilities with smaller playgrounds which are exclusively for the children who attend the nursery and are supervised by the nursery staff. It is therefore very important that these facilities have post installation inspections and ongoing annual inspections to ensure compliance to the appropriate European standards and that the facilities are safe for use.
