The following plan has been developed as a guide for the implementation of and compliance with ASTM F1487 Standard Consumer Safety Performance Specification for Playground Equipment for Public Use.  The American Society for Testing and Materials (ASTM) published its playground safety standard in response to playground injuries reported by the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission.  The standard is intended to reduce the potential for injuries in playground areas.  The plan is to provide written guidelines for an effective playground safety program and to increase the safety for children using the playground.
