Playground Injuries

Decreasing your Liability

Playground Supervision BK
Training your teachers and playground supervisors can decrease your student injuries by approximately 40%. Quality training can save your school and district a huge legal bill.  
As many of you probably know, I serve as an expert witness when children are injured at school. I turn down more than 50% of cases because there is no defense for some situations. I've been an expert witness for some cases in which a child was injured severely and will cope with the injury for the rest of their life.  Inevitably, the teacher or person supervising has little training in their responsibilities in supervision children (especially in the outdoor environment).  
This is troubling on many fronts.   Most injuries are avoidable. A key legal point to consider is the questions was the injury "avoidable"?  Another key question the court will determine is if school staff had "prior knowledge" of a dangerous situation and did nothing to correct it.  In both cases, the court would likely hold both the school principal and district superintendent liable for the injury.
We have 2 offerings to assist you in playground supervisor training.  First is a book, Playground Supervision a Guide for Playground Supervisors and second our online P layground Supervision Course.
