Do your agency playgrounds have engineered wood fiber surfaces? If you answered yes, you'll want to know what the US Department of Justice (DOJ) said in a June 2020 settlement with an agency that had all its playgrounds fail playground access requirements. Come listen to John McGovern (WT Group) and Tony Malkusak (CPSI) as they review the federal regulatory playground requirements in the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) and discuss how these interface with the American Society for Testing Materials (ASTM) voluntary playground safety standards. They will also review ADA enforcement and the critical role played by families of children with disabilities in this and other disputes, and maintenance smart practices that can keep your agency off the news feed and the front page. Offered in partnership with the Illinois Park & Recreation Association (IPRA), don’t miss this 2-part webinar series for those wanting to be on the forefront of playground accessibility and safety.
