Playground surfacing is the single most important factor in reducing the risk of injury from falls. According to the Canada Safety Council, "An estimated 25,000 children nationwide receive emergency treatment every year due to injuries in the playground." In the United States, this number rises to over 200,000 children. Of this figure, falls from equipment account for two-thirds of the injuries and account for over $1 billion in medical and lawsuit costs annually.
What can be done to help prevent these hazards?
The Canadian Safety Council noted, "Parents should check that surfaces around any equipment from which a child could fall can absorb the impact of a fall; grass, dirt, asphalt, or concrete are not acceptable."
