Annual and post installation of playground equipment. A comprehensive annual inspection shall be carried out. In addition this inspection is intended to determine conformance with the relevant parts of AS 4685 and to establish the overall level of safety of the equipment, foundations and playground surfaces.

The post installation and comprehensive inspections shall be performed by a person who has training and experience that enables them to perform a full conformity check to AS4685. Impact testing in accordance with AS4422 requires the capability to operate specialised equipment and interpret the results. These inspections do not need to be carried out by the same person or organisation. While we touch on AS4422, there is no unit or course as yet for impact testing.

A comprehensive post-installation inspection is conducted by a competent person prior to the opening of the playground. This inspection shall verify that the playground conforms with the requirements of the relevant parts of the AS4685 series and the impact attenuating surfacing test in AS4422, (this is not included in this course) and shall identify and detail the tasks that need to be carried out to conformance.
