Play Services Ireland specialise in conducting Playgroung Inspections, Training and Maintenance throughout the Island of Ireland. We have an excellent relationship with many councils large and small with whom we have provided a professional and effecient service.
As well as working with Councils, Play Services Ireland also provides its services to Schools, Nurseries, Community Groups and Private sector businesses such as Hotels, Caravan Parks, Shopping Complexes and large number of Indoor clients.
In recent years, curriculum demands, funding availability and hard working teachers and PTA’s (Parent & Teacher Associations) combined, have seen the number of outdoor fixed equipped play areas and trim trails increase markedly. 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 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.
- Private Sector Enterprises
Installation and maintenance contractors and facility management companies regularly use the services of Play Services Ireland to assist with consultation and design advice as well and carrying out post installation inspections on completed projects to ensure that these are inline and compliant with the appropriate European standards. Post Installation inspections are often requested by the client to ensure their new facility has been installed correctly before payment is made.

There has been an increase in the number of hotels installing playgrounds for their clients in order to meet the requirements of families with children. It is important that each hotel follows the recommendations in the European standards EN1176 and ensures that their playgrounds are inspected regularly and are safe for use.
