What is this standard about?

This standard is Part 1 in a series on the safety of playground equipment and surfacing. The series was developed to provide EU harmonized safety benchmarks for children’s playground equipment. The objective is to allow children of differing abilities and ages as many exciting play opportunities as possible, with as much safety as necessary.

Note: This British Standard is the UK implementation of EN 1176-1:2017. It supersedes BS EN 1176-1:2008 which will be withdrawn on the 31st October 2018 to provide a reasonable implementation period.

Who is this standard for?

  • Playground equipment and surfacing manufacturers
  • Those responsible for commissioning playgrounds e.g. local authorities, breweries, holiday park owners
  • Those responsible for playground design, construction, maintenance and management
  • Safety professionals
  • Enforcement authorities
  • Parents and carers of children using playgrounds 

Why should you use this standard?

This part of BS EN 1176 covers general safety requirements for permanently installed equipment and surfacing in public play areas, such as local authority parks, schools, pubs, holiday parks and shopping outlets.

It applies to playground equipment intended for individual and collective use by children. It specifies requirements that will protect children from hazards that they might be unable to foresee when using the equipment as intended or in a manner that can be reasonably anticipated.

This standard also helps users to ensure a proper level of safety for children playing in, on or around playground equipment while at the same time promoting activities and features which benefit children by providing valuable experiences that help them cope with situations beyond the playground.

What’s changed since the last update?

It includes some minor revisions while continuing to support the safety principles on which this standard has always been based. The main changes are:

a) References to CEN/TR 16467:2013, CEN/TR 16598:2014, CEN/TR 16396:2012, and CEN/TR 16879:2016 have been added

b) The scope has been amended to include reference to ‘permanently installed’, electricity, water and UV.
