Fight for Your Mobility! You can’t prevent every fall or injury, but here are some tips to help keep children safe:
Don’t ride down slides with your baby or young child in your lap.
The safest playground surfaces consist of shock-absorbing uniform materials, such as rubber mats, or loose fill such as double-shredded bark mulch, engineered wood fibers, sand and fine or medium gravel of suitable depth.
Steer children to age- and size-appropriate playground equipment.
Don’t play on wet equipment where kids are more likely to slip and fall.
Don’t crowd around the exit areas of slides, swings or merry-go-rounds.
