Our latest information sheet aims to set out why a balanced, thoughtful approach to managing risks in children’s play is needed. It also aims to give an overview of risk-benefit assessment (RBA), which is widely accepted as a suitable approach.

Weighing up risks and benefits in children’s play has been written by Tim Gill, a writer, researcher and advocate for children’s play and mobility.

The information sheet is aimed at all those who have an interest in children’s play, including playworkers, providers and managers of play settings, educators, health and safety professionals, risk managers and decision makers.
