Become an RPII Official Inspector
The My Academy magazine published a very interesting article in their Spring / Summer issue this week, reminding us all about the importance of physical and outdoor play in our children’s lives. They point out that “Childhood obesity and physical inactivity are rising and young people’s relationship with the outdoor world are dwindling”.
We recently sponsored the Provost Williams C of E Primary School before school running club and were featured in the Coventry Telegraph.
We recently donated £100 to the Ryton on Dunsmore History Group for help with their re-enactment of the Christmas day truce on Saturday 13th September at St Leonards Church. The re-enactment of the famous football match took part on a heritage day for the The Way We Were Ryton 1914 exhibition.
Using RPII inspectors is the only way to be certain that your legal and moral obligations are being met.
Our vision is clear: to ensure playground safety for all types of play areas and equipment. We do this by:
Accrediting and certifying individual play inspectors who have shown the required level of knowledge and demonstrated competence to the required standards.
Providing a register of inspectors who reach the required standard and agree to the terms and conditions of registration.
Promoting the Register of Play Inspectors and making it widely available to organisations and individuals who may require the services of such inspectors.
How it Works
The Register will benefit inspectors, employers and the public by:
Accrediting organisations with approval to organise and run equipment and playground inspector courses
Approving a syllabus and methodology for delivering the course content
Ensuring adequate resources and finances to meet the above aims
Ensuring candidates have a range of opportunities to demonstrate the required skills, knowledge and competencies
Promoting the existence and purpose of the register to the play industry and play operators
Ensuring registered inspectors have Continual Professional Development (CPD) and keep up-to-date with changes to equipment and play safety requirements
Developing a code of conduct within which all registered inspectors will operate
