The injuries caused by playground equipment vary. Children who wear loose clothing, necklaces, or clothes with drawstrings face a danger of strangulation when the clothing becomes stuck on play equipment. Other children will suffer from slip and fall injuries, which can also have serious, permanent, or fatal consequences.
Parents and monitors should also prevent unsafe behaviors of the children playing, such as pushing each other, crowing the equipment, or using the equipment inappropriately.
