The Play Safety Forum have launched the ‘Risk-Benefit Assessment Form’ which is a simple risk management tool designed to support councils, schools and other play providers. 

The RBA form will help providers balance the benefits of an activity with any inherent risk, taking into account the risks while recognising the benefits of challenging play experiences for children. Announcing the launch Robin Sutcliffe, Chair of the Play Safety Forum said:

‘Children need and choose exciting places to play, which inevitably means managing situations that are inherently risky. The RBA form will help providers assess how this can be reconciled with a natural desire for children’s safety.’

Proludic always put children’s safety first when designing play equipment and playgrounds however we also believe that rule-free challenging play opportunities can be a great benefit to a child, improving physical activity and development whilst also increasing confidence and self-belief. Our multi-play units include climbing walls and nets and our trim trails test coordination and balance, check out our VivareaKanopeIxoBiiboxDiabolo and Vitality Trim Trial.

The RBA form is published by Play Scotland in partnership with Play England, Play Wales and PlayBoard Northern Ireland. The publication was commissioned and developed by the Play Safety Forum.
