Safe Play Resources

Safe Play Resources 

Nationally, nearly 10% of all child injury hospitalisations are playground related. This equates to over 6,000 children being admitted to hospital each year from playground injury, with countless more children injured who do not require hospital admission. What’s more, these numbers appear to be rising.

Please refer to the updated information on our factsheets on how to create safe play areas for children. Let us help you to reduce the number of children sustaining injuries in playgrounds.

Playgroups, day care and childcare centres as well as anyone whose children play outdoors on playground equipment will find them useful. They cover areas such as the current Australian Standards, recommended equipment and under-surfacing materials, equipment items and maintenance requirements.

For all the information you need on safe play environments, please refer to Kidsafe NSW's extensive list of playground information sheets available to download here:
