Certified Playground Safety Inspections (CPSI)

A playground safety audit consists of an examination of the playground equipment, surfacing, and signage using agency policies and procedures and current standards to identify both compliant and non-compliant conditions. This audit is conducted by an individual with a current, valid CPSI (Certified Playground Safety Inspector) certification. The program then receives a report that determines a hazard priority rating for all non-compliant conditions based on the results. The program then uses this information to create a repair/removal or replacement priorities plan based on injury potential. If you need a playground audit for Colorado Shines, this service meets that requirement.
