10 Tips To Mitigate Trampoline Liabilities, Youngs Insurance, Ontario

If you have a trampoline or are thinking about getting one, make sure you consider the liabilities and safety risks that are associated with having one.

10 Trampoline Safety Tips To Help Avoid Disaster

  • Tip #1 > Always supervise all users on the trampoline, regardless of their ages or experience levels.
  • Tip #2 > Only allow one person on the trampoline at a time to help avoid the risk of collision.
  • Tip #3 > Do not allow children under the age of six on the trampoline.
  • Tip #4 > Do not place a ladder near a trampoline because it welcomes younger children to climb up and start jumping.
  • Tip #5 > Do not permit jumpers to do somersaults or flips, this increases the risk of both spinal cord and head injuries.
  • Tip #6 > Do not allow jumpers to use the trampoline to jump onto other objects.
  • Tip #7 > Securely attach safety padding to cover the hooks, springs, and frame of the trampoline. If there is a fall this will reduce the risk of being hurt by the metal parts.
  • Tip #8 > Set up the trampoline on level ground away from any trees or obstacles. 
  • Tip #9 > Install safety netting around a trampoline to provide fall protection and minimize the risk of serious injury. 
  • Tip #10 > Inspect the trampoline before each use to make sure that the springs are secure and that the bed does not have any tears or holes.

We hope our trampoline safety tips help you and your family stay safe while jumping this summer!
