Teaching Playground Safety To Kids

Being a school governor or headmaster at a school is never easy. Especially when decisions have to be made about kids safety. So you could be fooled into thinking that selecting a new sandpit would be a welcome light relief as it can’t be that hard right? I mean what’s the harm in playing with sand?

Test surfaces for hardness. Hard surfaces pose the risk of a head injury or fractures. Safe surfaces are made of shock-absorbing materials, such as mulch, wood chips, sand, fine gravel, and rubber matting materials.

Act quickly if you notice problems – whether it be socially or academically. If dealt with quickly there’s less chance of it having a long-term impact.

A swing set can also offer a variety a seat swing, disc swing, trapeze bar and climbing rope or ladder, giving children a variety of things to do. Many design a larger swing set to allow adult sized swings also!

In one child safety poster on 사설토토사이트 for example, the illustration shows a child running after a ball while a car screech to a halt in time. Adults looking at this poster will be alert to the presence of fencing or hedges that can help prevent children from straying into parking lots and oncoming traffic. If it is just a set of words, the message is diluted. With the cartoon in the safety poster, the observer will understand the full impact of the situation.

Small children and sometimes older ones like to play in sand but outside especially with pets around it can be problematic. Some safety tips for those with cats and children include making an actual sand box. Large tractor tires aren’t as easy to come by anymore in many areas but you can make a frame with 1X6″ lumber and have a custom made sandbox, with a lid that fits over it to keep cats from using it as a litter box.

Some 200,000 children are treated in emergency rooms every year for injuries they suffered on playgrounds. About 70 percent of the injuries are from falls. When you bring your child to a playground, you may be exposing him or her to new hazards.

Check retailers such as Walmart or Kmart for swing sets, too. There is quite a price range, from under $200 for a basic set to around $2,000 and up for the more colorful structures with slides, climbing ramps or walls, and tire swings, for example.
