Playgrounds in all 4 quadrants of the nation’s capital are within reach of our Certified Playground Safety Inspectors (CPSI). Our clients in Washington, DC, include federal government agencies, leading property management companies, and top public and private schools.
Evaluation: Our playground inspectors evaluate playgrounds in Washington, DC, using standards issued by the American Society for the Testing of Materials (ASTM) and guidelines issued by the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) in its “Handbook for Public Playground Safety” (Pub. 325; downloadable here).
Certification: Our Certified Playground Safety Inspectors (CPSI) have decades of experience doing playground inspections, site evaluations, and construction. All CPSIs are certified by the National Playground Safety Institute (NPSI), which is organized by the National Recreation and Park Association (NRPA), a national recreation authority that has more than 22,000 members.
Report: Once the playground inspection in Washington, DC, is completed, our playground inspector will issue you a detailed written evaluation. Two types of reports are available: audit reports and general inspection reports. Audit reports (including NAEYC Audits) are issued as a comprehensive written report of approximately 60 pages, evaluating every aspect of your playground for compliance with ASTM and CPSC standards. General playground inspections include a written report and photographs, but they are less comprehensive than NAEYC Audits, usually no more than 10 pages. For both audits and inspections, if your playground has any problem areas, the inspector will explain them in detail and make recommendations about ways to proceed to rectify the problems. The inspector will also be available to discuss the report with your organization. Every inspection and report is confidential.
