Playground Safety Audit

Playground Safety Audit

Do you know if you are a PCBU? The acronym PCBU represents a Person Conducting a Business or Undertaking. PCBU’s who may be responsible for playground safety are school boards, caretakers, restaurant owners, councils, churches, and many other custodians of playgrounds are considered PCBU’s.

Are you in one of these roles? If so, did you know that you have an obligation as far as reasonably practicable to ensure the safety and compliance of your playgrounds? The New Zealand Standard 5828:2015 documents that an annual playground inspection must be undertaken and should be completed by a competent person.

An annual playground inspection conducted by Betta Property Compliance will provide you with a comprehensive audit of your playground equipment. Our inspections are completed by a certified RPII inspector which ensures that you are meeting your obligations under the Health and Safety Act 2015. Our inspector will document structural issues, worn and broken playground components, non-compliant areas, and safety hazards in the report.

Our inspections include the following:

  • NZS5828:2015 compliant assessment
  • Photos, risk assessment and recommendations
  • General health and safety hazards
  • Wear and tear / part damage identification
  • Structural stability evaluation
  • Free consultation with playground maintenance provider

Our inspectors are all police vetted, have full personal indemnity insurance and public liability insurance. We will also issue you a certificate on completion. To book in your playground inspection today, call one of our friendly staff on 0800 422 386.
