There are two components to playground safety in our schools; playground equipment and playground supervision. Playground equipment is all about hazard identification and learning how to identifying general playground hazards. We will discuss the general playground hazards; protrusion or entanglement hazards; head, neck, crush, or shear hazards during this training. Playground supervision is more focused on positioning and continually moving around to keep the high hazard activities in front of you. We will discuss simple rules to assist playground supervisors to be successful.
PACE also provides on-site trainings upon request. Contact PACE at firstname.lastname@example.org for information.
