Safety for All: How an Equity Lens Can Enhance Playground Safety

What do you think about when you hear: playground safety? While we typically think about physical infrastructure when examining playground safety, there is another layer we can’t overlook. During this learning event, we will discuss the history of the Certified Playground Safety Inspector (CPSI) Certification while exploring the mental, social and emotional benefits of play. NRPA staff and playground experts will discuss the concepts of equity and inclusion as they relate to playground safety and discuss how park and recreation professionals can provide a safe space for the children in their communities to play and grow together. As children, we make so many memories on playgrounds that help shape us. And as park and recreation professionals, Certified Playground Safety Inspectors, playground manufacturers, nonprofit organizations and more, we play a critical role in creating a safe space for children to play and learn.
