Children's playgrounds in Germany must be subject to regular inspection and maintenance. The measures for inspection result from the general road safety obligation. The DIN EN 1176-7 standardisation contains all important points for installation and maintenance. It is obligatory to comply conscientiously with this standard.
A playground safety inspection is carried out with the help of a checklist to contribute to safety on playgrounds. The conscientious documentation and logging of deficiencies and incidents helps to ensure that safety risks are minimised or eliminated.
During the visual inspection, obvious sources of danger due to vandalism, weather influences or wear and tear are recorded and documented. Among other things, the general cleanliness of the facility is also checked during this inspection. Do any hazards stand out? Are there sharp edges or missing or protruding parts?
Operational inspections of playground facilities should be carried out every 1-3 months. This is a detailed check of the operational safety and stability of the equipment. Special attention should be paid to the following things:
The annual playground safety inspection is carried out by an external auditor. This auditor checks the general operational condition of the equipment, foundations and surfaces of the playground. The main focus is to review the visual and operational playground inspection of the previous year.
