The first day of winter is less than a month away! With winter comes a whole new set of playground safety challenges. Here are a few things to keep in mind:
- Pay extra attention to things like scarves, long ties on jackets or other loose string-type things on children’s clothing. These items can become stuck on equipment and cause a choking hazard!
- Be sure to check equipment for ice and snow build-up.
- Remember that when playground safety surfacing becomes frozen it is no longer effective and may not provide protection if a child were to fall.
