The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission’s (“CPSC” or “Commission”) Public Playground Safety Handbook was first published in 1981 under the name A Handbook for Public Playground Safety. The recommendations in the Handbook are focused on playground-related injuries and mechanical mechanisms of injury; falls from playground equipment have remained the largest single hazard pattern associated with playground use.
Note: This is not a State of Tennessee Code, since the state does not have a code guideline, but highly recommended for playgrounds installation and upkeep from the state, which the Warren County Schools Plant and Operations Department uses as a guideline.
