Compliance with DIN EN 1176 through playground safety training
In the interest of child safety, European norm DIN EN 1176 requires that playgrounds and playground equipment be tested exclusively by qualified individuals in order for the facility to comply with safety standards and regulations. Those responsible for the building and maintenance of playgrounds have a legal responsibility to ensure these rules are respected and children can play safely.
Following DIN SPEC 79161, which defines the qualifications necessary to become “qualified playground inspector”, we have designed a training program aimed at educating individuals and helping them earn this qualification. Courses provide instruction on the independent inspection of playgrounds and equipment as well as teaching participants how to avoid safety-related errors in planning, installation and maintenance.
Safety is our highest priority, and our reputation, as well as our portfolio of playground safety seminars reflects this. Our instructional team consists of well-respected experts who draw on their own practical experience in the field to enrich their courses. We are able to deliver this specialized training in the form of in-house seminars as well.
