You might be concerned with the safety of your children in your home, but sometimes it’s easy to forget the dangers that are connected to the things they play on when they are outside. One danger to be aware of is trampolines. Every year in the US, there are hundreds of thousands of trampoline related injuries, and most of these are involved with young children.

Never let your young children play on the trampoline alone. It is also good to have a few rules in place to control their behavior while on it.

One of the biggest risks is when there is more than one child on the trampoline at the same time. This will often lead to injury and should be avoided.

Don’t allow anyone to jump from high objects onto the trampoline.

Install a net around your trampoline. This will lessen the risk of falling off the trampoline onto the ground.
