RAD is very pleased to be able to offer this type of training again, after a two year absence. It is a must for any organisation with a responsibility of managing play and recreational areas.

The aim of this session is to enable your organisation to carry out routine visual playground inspections safely and to take appropriate follow up actions.

Date:             Thursday 26th April 2018 – Registration from 9.00am, session time: 9.30am – 3.00pm

Venue:          The Whitworth Centre & Park, Dale Road, Darley Dale, Matlock, DE4 2EQ

  • Risk benefit judgments and how to minimise risks

  • A logical and systematic approach to inspecting including risk assessment
  • Practical inspection of playgrounds, approaches and surrounding areas
