Playground inspections are important to protect children from hazards that can cause entrapment, entanglement, and sometimes even fatal injury. Completing a certified playground inspection also limits the liability of park owners when accidents do occur. Our playground inspections in Illinois and Indiana are thorough, affordable and reliable.
Receiving a playground audit or a playground inspection is important if you have recently installed a new playground or plan to renovate an existing play area in the future. Playground inspections are not as detailed as audits and are recommended on an annual basis to prevent potential hazards.

Playground inspections are based on the latest American Society for Testing and Materials (ASTM) standards F1487-05, F2223-09 and the public playground safety guidelines set forth by the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC). NPSI combines the guidelines and regulations from both organizations in an effort to simplify the inspection process so that nothing is missed.
