Almost all playgrounds and schoolyards in the United States are owned and operated by the city.

Common Causes of Playground Injuries

Playgrounds offer opportunities for kids to climb, slide, jump and run. Most of the time, the equipment used in the playground is responsible for playground injuries.

Some common problems with playground equipment include:

  • The height may not be age-appropriate
  • There are no impact-absorbing surfaces
  • The placement is faulty or dangerous
  • Poorly maintained and have sharp edges
  • Have platforms without guardrails
  • Not recommended for playgrounds

Playground statistics show almost 75% of playground injuries are incurred by falling. Other injuries are caused by obstacles or a body part being cut, pinched, crushed, or entrapped. Fractures of an upper limb are the most common form of injury of falls from a climbing structure, swings, or slides. Besides fractures from falls, kids also suffer from head injuries when they fall from swings and climbing structures.

Philadelphia Laws that Prevent Injuries in Playgrounds

The law requires that all cities and housing authorities ensure playgrounds are safe from common playground accidents. Fact is, most city and state agencies do not maintain their premises and this can lead to playground injuries.
