Playground Inspections

Playground Inspections For Your Peace Of Mind

A regular playground inspection is essential as part of the upkeep of a play area.

It is proven to lower the risk, improve health and safety and so reduce the claims made against owners of these spaces. Play area inspections are important as is the follow-up playground maintenance work that ensures the play area complies with the relevant playground standard. All of our playground inspections are carried out by a RPII accredited member of our team, meaning all of our playground inspectors are fully qualified to carry out examinations and playground safety inspections of indoor and outdoor play areas.

Safeplay provide a good quality all round service for playground managers. Monthly inspections are always carried out to the required level of quality and detail... ...The whole team are friendly and approachable and together they provide a great service.

What’s offered in an Operational Playground Inspection?

The Operational Playground Inspection offered by Safeplay looks at all aspects of play equipment in detail, and includes a thorough written report on everything on site, including but not limited to fences, gates, soft safety surfaces and signage. Our playground inspection reports provide an assessment of the condition and risk element of each piece of equipment. We keep photographic records of every play area inspection or call out, and these are available to our clients on request. We know that sometimes time is of the essence, which is why we can respond quickly to urgent requests should you need a playground inspection carried out immediately. Daily Visual Inspections can also be handled by the Safeplay team. If your playground isn’t up to standard, we also offer playground repair and playground maintenance services to restore it to its former condition!

Can We Complete Visual Inspections & Timber Probe Inspections?

Visual playground inspections are another service we offer which can help to make sure your play surface is safe. This type of play area inspection isn’t quite as in depth as our Operational Playground Inspections, but is useful to identify any obvious risks and assess the condition of equipment on a more regular basis. Visual inspections consist of one of our inspectors doing a walk-around of your play area and producing a playground safety inspection report.



We’re also proud to offer Timber Probe Inspections, a specialist service that not many other companies can offer. This type of playground safety inspection tests any timber play equipment you have in your play area for internal decay, and assesses any decay present. We can regularly test your timber, and if infected, can replace anything affected.

Do we also offer Annual Playground Inspections?

We currently don’t offer Annual Playground Inspections as we believe the company that carries out your Annual Inspections should be different from the company that carries out your Operational Inspections. We feel that an independent opinion is necessary as this can then assess the performance of the Operation Inspection company, something we’re happy to be assessed against. We can, however, recommend Annual Inspectors to you.

Do we offer Post Installation Playground Inspections?

We currently do not offer Post Installation Playground Inspections completed by our playground inspectors – however, it is a legal requirement that following the construction of every new play area, an inspection of the playground must be carried out by an independent playground inspector with RPII accreditation. This ensures that the company who installed the playground has done so in accordance with all safety standards and regulations. We are able to manage your Post Installation Playground inspection by putting you in touch with a team who have all the relevant qualifications and are able to carry out your play area inspections, so get in touch to see how we can help manage the entire process for you today!


If you haven’t yet had your new playground installed, we also offer playground surfacing services, using wet pour surfacing or a range of other surface types depending on your requirements. We can also also source and install playground equipment and undertake regular playground cleaning for the finishing touches! Our start to finish personal, hands on service takes all of your requirements into account to help us deliver a service you’ll ultimately be satisfied with.

Working With Safeplay over these past 4 years has been an absolute pleasure. They have made life so much easier when it comes to playgrounds... ...The Staff and communication lines are incredibly friendly and a great pleasure to work with.
