The service that you receive from Educational Play Environments doesn’t stop when we have left site. The opening of your playground is just the beginning. To ensure your playground stays in top condition year after year we remain fully committed to you after completion. While staff can carry out daily/weekly and monthly inspections, we recommend that an independent suitably qualified body inspects the equipment quarterly and once annually. The Register of Play Inspectors International (RPII) is the official UK body for examining, accrediting and certificating inflatable, indoor and outdoor play inspectors. Ensuring play safety is essential – both for the protection of the children using the equipment and to mitigate risk for the councils, schools and organisations in charge of these play areas. By using accredited playground inspectors, providers can be sure that they meet the strict criteria set by the RPII and that they’ve been fully trained to conduct inspections to the required levels of competence. Following the installation of our equipment into your play area, we can arrange for inspections and maintenance to be carried out to help keep your playground equipment in top condition. It is our ultimate objective to deliver a “10 out of 10” experience and level of service that not only brings you back to us for years to come but also leaves you in a position where you would not hesitate to recommend us. A written report is supplied covering site safety and condition, equipment, surfacing, and ancillary item safety and condition, and compliance with EN 1176 where relevant. Recommendations for any remedial action required are given together with risk ratings for each item. Children’s playgrounds should be inspected annually by an independent specialist to ensure the long-term safety of the site, equipment and ancillary items. This will also meet legal and insurance responsibilities as well as complying with the requirements of EN 1176 (the European Playground Standard). Inspection and Maintenance Packages available: We offer four different packages, Gold Service, Silver Service, Bronze Service and a Pay as you go Operational Inspection. Further information can be viewed here. In order to validate guarantees, we recommend inspections are to be a minimum of: A daily/weekly visual inspection keeping a record of findings A monthly visual inspection keeping a record of findings An annual inspection completed by a qualified inspector A record confirming what has been inspected and when should be readily available upon request. Any findings must be documented to ensure guarantees are upheld. Any issues must be reported to firstname.lastname@example.org within 10 days. To assist you in carrying out your routine inspections we can recommend a training course for the person responsible if required. Daily/Weekly Visual Routine Inspection The routine maintenance of your Educational Play Environments Ltd equipment consists of preventative measures to maintain their level of safety and performance. On a ‘Daily/Weekly Visual Routine Inspection’ you should be checking for visible damage and loose parts. Are there any exposed foundations or loose parts? Can you see sharp edges, broken, frayed or missing parts? Are components overly worn and torn? We strongly recommend the daily inspection of heavily used or high‐vandal‐risk playgrounds or those that have already been in service for a certain period of time. All damages and defects must be eliminated immediately in order to guarantee the safety and functional reliability of your Educational Play Environments Ltd products. Record your findings and any action taken in our Maintenance Report Form which can be found in our Operational and Maintenance Manual. Monthly Operational Inspection The following checks should be carried out during the Monthly Operational Inspection: Are there any exposed foundations or loose parts? Can you see sharp edges, broken or missing parts? Are components overly worn and torn? Are all wooden components acceptable? (E.g. no splinters, rot or other damages) Are all metal parts well connected and not worn down? Are all screwed connections and bolted joints tight? If not, please tighten them. Are all plastic and/or rubber components satisfactory? All damages and defects must be eliminated immediately in order to guarantee the safety and functional reliability of your Educational Play Environments Ltd products. Record your findings and any action taken in our Maintenance Report Form which can be found in our Operational and Maintenance Manual. Annual Inspection An ‘Annual Inspection’ should be carried out by an independent specialist not connected with the playground operator or owner. In addition to those of the ‘Daily Visual Routine Inspection’ and the ‘Monthly Operational Inspection’, the following checks are required: Are all foundations stable and the equipment well anchored? Replace joints that show severe corrosions or heavy wear and tear. All wooden components exposed to weather conditions have to be checked. Please pay particular attention to the parts installed below ground as well as to all those components, which are essential to the stability of the equipment. Essentially, we are looking at vandalism, wear and tear, long term structural problems, standards compliance and design, along with risk assessment etc. This report essentially covers the overall safety of the playground. All damages and defects must be eliminated immediately in order to guarantee the safety and functional reliability of your Educational Play Environments Ltd products.
