  1. Fulltext. The risk of childhood injury on Boston's playground equipment and surfaces.

    Article - En anglais


    The Childhood Injury Prevention Program of the Boston Departement of Health and Hospitals conducted a survey of injury risk in Boston's playgrounds.

    A standardized checklist was used to assess a 25% sample of public playgrounds for hazards.

    Climbers accounted for 34% of the hazards observed and had the greatest proportion of significant hazards.

    The surfacing material in 100% of the playgrounds observed was unsafe.

    Urban children risk exposure to hazardous playground equipment frequently situated above unsafe surfacing material.
