Playing is out of question one of the favorite activities of children. Playgrounds, play parks, and play areas provide the perfect environment for children to romp. Therefore, it is of great importance to secure those areas to prevent accidents. From indoor playgrounds with trampolines, playgrounds in the neighborhoods to schoolyards, child safety is everywhere important.
During the late 1800s the first playgrounds were introduced in the United Kingdom and the United States as development aid for children. However, the design of the playground equipment was not that safe resulting in broken bones and serious injuries. Over the centuries our knowledge of safety and children’s needs developed, improving playground equipment design. Modern playgrounds have become much safer. The surface has become softer and the play equipment leaves less room for an accident. Because of these various adjustments that increase child safety, children can play with minimal safety hazards.
