Review of Plans Service

Kidsafe NSW promotes the importance of children experiencing and learning about risk through safe, creative play. The expert team at Kidsafe NSW provides a Review of Plans service to assist designers and playground operators to create playgrounds that offer a balance between safety, challenge, natural elements and sculpture. Submit your playground plans to the PAU for assessment against the Australian Standards for playgrounds and guidelines for inclusivity. This is a great method to gain advice regarding compliance prior to the commencement of works.
