In the interest of public playground safety, the International Playground Equipment Manufacturers Association (IPEMA) provides a Third Party Certification Service whereby a designated independent laboratory validates a playground company’s certification of conformance to ASTM standards. The use of the corresponding logo indicates that TotTurf has received written validation from the independent laboratory that the product(s) associated with the use of the logo conforms to the requirements of the indicated standard. Check the IPEMA website, www.ipema.org, to confirm product validation.
The Consumer Product Safety Commission is an independent agency within the United States federal Government with the authority to inform the public of current product safety performance information and recommend practices. The CPSC first published their guidelines for public playgrounds in 1981 and have updated their publication several times since then. The current CPSC Handbook for Public Playground Safety, publication #325, is an excellent guide for owners and operators of public play environments.
