Play Together. Play Smart. Play S.A.F.E.™

The National Program for Playground Safety developed an easy-to-use Playground Report Card to evaluate the safety of your community’s playgrounds. Based on national guidelines and data-driven research from NPPS field experts, the Report Card will guide you through assessing your playground on the four tenants of the S.A.F.E ™ Playground Injury Prevention framework — Supervision, Appropriate Environment, Fall Surfacing, and Equipment Maintenance.

Through a scoring system based on simple yes or no responses, your playground will be given a letter grade, which will provide you with information on what (if any) improvements need to be made at your playground to reduce the potential for life-threatening injuries.
