Adventure playgrounds are a flexible and exciting form of provision offering children opportunities of free play increasingly denied to them elsewhere. They are unique in their aim to provide exploration of their natural world, manipulatioin of a variety of tools and materials, challenging physical activity and spontaneous creativity in a single site with the added security of skilled supervision. Risk and Safety in Play draws on PLAYLINKS 35 years experience with adventure playgrounds and the findings of its three year development project 'Quality Play and Safety.' The text has been widely researched and commented on by playworkers, managers and safety experts. Risk and Safety in Play is an essential handbook for practitioners. It reviews the theory and practice of adventure playgrounds, introduces recent changes to legislation and gives guidance on the interpretation of legal responsibilities. Particular attention is paid to the duty to carry out risk assessments and the book shows how they fit into the values and the daily management of adventure playgrounds.;Backed by PLAYLINK's advisory and technical services, appendices provide pro forma checklists, consent and report forms for photocopying and information on further reading and useful contacts. This book is intended for all those working as play officers, playworkers, playground designers or consultants in supervised play provision, legal advisers and regulatory authorities. It will also be of interest to anyone involved in leisure and recreation management and the design and construction of sports facilities.
