Play Australia Two Day Training Program JUNE
Play Australia invites you to attend a 2 day seminar about outdoor play environments
It is recognized today that children are spending more time indoors than ever before, and that we must adopt strategies to encourage children and families to be outdoors in the natural environment.
Play Australia has developed this Training Program to enable quality advice and support to be accessible to everyone responsible for playground development, design, management and safety. The program will deliver the information required to meet the increasing concerns re safety of children and young people in playgrounds and play spaces whilst strongly supporting the on-going development of exciting and challenging experiences for all children. Particular attention will be given to Australian Standards relevant to the effective risk management of playgrounds, especially AS4685 on Play Equipment.
The Standard on Play Equipment AS4685 has now been in place for 7 years and risk management responsibility requires that all managers of playgrounds become familiar with it’s key messages, given that it is now the basis for playground management practice throughout Australia.
This program will provide details of amendments and changes introduced to the Standard AS4685 and key details of all other Standards pertinent to playground management in particular AS/NZS 4422 which deals with ground surfacing, and AS./NZS 4486; 2 key documents critical to effective playground management. The program will provide the skills and knowledge required to enable people responsible for the management and operation of playgrounds to carry out their responsibilities appropriately.
Who should attend?
Enrolments are invited from all sectors of the play industry. Please forward this information to your Parks, Recreation, Engineering and Children and Family Services staff, and any other staff with a responsibility for playground design, maintenance and management.
Presenters will include people with leading expertise from across Australia.
