Tips help ensure safety
Some play environments may not be as safe as they appear to be _ including
your neighborhood playground. Here are some tips to ensure your child's
· Be sure your child plays on age-appropriate equipment.
· Make sure play equipment is anchored safely to the ground and
there are no protrusions, worn or defective parts or sharp edges.
· Look for surfaces under equipment that minimize fall-related
injuries _ hardwood-fiber mulch or chips, pea gravel, sand and synthetic
material such as shredded rubber.
· Remove drawstrings on clothing, necklaces and other items around
the neck that could cause strangulation.
"Take time to check the playgrounds at your child's daycare center,
camp and school," said Dr. Julie Boom a pediatrician at Texas Children's
Hospital in Houston. "Ensure your child is properly supervised and report
safety hazards to the appropriate person or agency," he said.
