Be aware of playground safety standards

Fast food chains often lure families with the indoor playground equipment that is available for kids.  Parents should keep in mind the normal precautions to prevent children from falling and suffering head injuries, but in addition should pay special attention to restaurant areas.  These businesses are required to oversee and maintain inspections and ensure that safety standards are followed.  One useful guide is the U.S. Consumer Product and Safety Commission’s Handbook for Playground Safety, which contains guidelines such as that requiring the use zone around playground equipment to extend a minimum of six feet in all directions from the perimeter of the equipment.  Let’s protect our kids – be aware of these standards and keep a watchful eye.
