Trampolines can be a lot of fun for children to play on but are you aware of the potential dangers of a trampoline? There are many parents that have been caught unaware by some serious injuries that happened right in their own backyard.
The danger of trampolines can basically be in one of 2 categories. It’s either because of the way it is being used or the way it was installed.
A trampoline might be more fun to play on with your friends, but the risk of accidents goes up greatly when more than one person at a time uses it. In fact, this is probably the most common way that people get hurt on trampolines. You might not think that it would be that serious when one child bumps into another, but with the forces that are involved, it could get really ugly.
When it comes to the way the trampoline is installed, you should ensure it is on flat, even ground and that there is sturdy netting around it. You should also let your children know that they never should jump off of an elevated surface onto the trampoline. Training your children on how to use a trampoline correctly could save their lives.
