Are you aware that each year more than 200,000 children go to hospital emergency rooms with injuries received while playing on playground equipment? Generally these accidents occur on equipment that is on public property. These injuries may include fractures, concussions, internal injuries, burns, dislocations and unfortunately even amputations. Surprisingly, more children are more likely to be seriously injured on playground equipment than they are in bicycle or car accidents.
Sadly, playgrounds pose all types of risks, including solid steel slides, decks or steps that have been in the direct sunlight and may reach temperatures high enough to cause serious burns in a matter of seconds. Unfortunately, younger children tend to remain in place when they contact a hot surface because they generally do not react as quickly by pulling their hands away or getting off a hot surface like older children do.
