Playground And School Injuries
Schools are responsible for exercising reasonable care and supervision to protect children against all foreseeable dangers.
Schools have a duty:
- to maintain school property and equipment in safe and proper condition;
- to maintain its playgrounds so that it is safe and free of harmful defects;
- to ensure that adequate safety equipment is provided to children if they are involved in a potentially dangerous activity; such as,
woodworking, scientific experimentation, or physical education; and
- to ensure proper supervision and care for all activities, excursions and classes.
These are the essential duties of our schools. If they fail to take measures to keep children safe, they can be found negligent for the injuries or harm that come to children under their care.
