Worldwide statistics indicate that 55% to 75% of all playground injuries result from falls onto non-compliant compacted surfaces from adjacent play structures. The purpose of the protective safety surfacing is to reduce the number of injuries overall and to protect children from life-threatening or debilitating injuries.

Selecting and maintaining your Playground Surfacing is a critical component in securing the safety of children who utilize the playground day after day. Roto-tilling and Surface Impact Attenuation Testing are two vital services we perform to ensure your investment is up to CAN / CSA Z-614-14 Standards.

A common problem with both Wood Fibre and Gravel is that without consistent and routine maintenance the surfaces become compacted and dispersed, leaving little protection.

Across Canada, 28,500 children are treated every year for playground injuries, and 75% of those injuries occur on climbing apparatus. And three-quarters of those incidents result from children falling onto inadequate play surfaces that fail to buffer their falls.

School board statistics provide similar numbers. In 2009, the Ontario School Boards’ Insurance Exchange (OSBIE) received about 27,000 playground incident reports, of which 1,500 were ranked as “serious enough to require medical attention.”

Between 2005 and 2009, playground injuries cost Ontario school boards $1.3 million in pay-outs. Of those incidents, the OSBIE website says, “77% of playground-related claims costs resulted from injuries on the climber alone, totalling just over $850,000.”

Inadequate surfacing was responsible for 16% of all playground claims.

Whether you select to “top up” your Playground Surfacing or utilize Roto-Tilling Services, this critical step is one that will see an immediate return in safety in the community.
