What playground safety precautions should I take with my child?

Impact-Absorbing Material

When checking out the play area, be sure the area surrounding the playground equipment is covered by an impact-absorbing material. This will reduce the risk of serious injury should your child fall. Materials include: mulch, woodchips, sand, shredded rubber or rubber mats.
