BIAA HOME : New CDC Heads Up Fact Sheet on Playground Safety

New CDC Heads Up Fact Sheet on Playground Safety

11-May-2016 Playgrounds provide an important opportunity for children to have fun, explore, and grow. Children learn through play and need opportunities to take risks, test their limits, and learn new skills through free play. Unfortunately, injuries can happen on the playground, even serious ones. A new CDC study finds that emergency departments see more than 20,000 kids (ages 14 and under) for playground-related traumatic brain injury (TBI) each year. These visits occur more frequently during the months of April, May, and September. 

To learn more, view the fact sheet here, or go to the CDC website.
