A Guide to the Australian Playground Standards 2021

The aim of this guide, created by Andrew Reedy of Play Check,  is to organise the information contained in the Australian playground Standards under logical and sequential headings.

The Standards are, by nature, a technical document and are not necessarily organised in a format or sequence that makes them easy to follow without significant cross referencing.  Even those who spend much time working with these Standards often find themselves searching the various parts of the standard for an obscure clause that impacts the way other clauses are interpreted in a particular application.

This document does not replace the need to use or rely on the actual Standard documents, which contain detail not included in this guide.
