Trampoline Safety & Accident Prevention
As in most recreational sports, participants may be injured. The following are common reasons why trampoline accidents happen and how to prevent them.
Landing on the head or neck can cause serious injury, paralysis or death even when landing on the middle of the trampoline.
Incorrect transfer between trampoline and decking or platform areas:
Walk from trampoline to decking areas. Improper transfer can result in sprains or breaks.
Hitting the frame:
Do not jump directly onto the safety pad. Jumpers should stay in the center of the trampoline when jumping. Injury may result from hitting the frame when control is lost.
More than one person on the trampoline:
Use by more than one person at the same time can result in serious injuries.
Only one person per lane in the flip zone at a time:
Do not jump in the flip zone when someone else is already in it as serious injury from collision may occur.
No diving or performing a belly flop into the flip zone:
Do not dive or attempt a belly flop into the flip zone as serious injury to head, neck or spine can result.
Inadequate skill level:
Attempting skills above one’s ability may result in serious injury paralysis or death.
Jumping with foreign objects can also increase the chances of getting injured. This includes keys, phones, cameras, belt buckles and studs. No jewellery is permitted while jumping.
No food or objects in mouth:
Chewing gum, food, candies or other objects in any person’s mouth are not permitted. These items may accidentally fall out causing unsanitary conditions and are also a choking hazard.
Alcohol and drug use:
Alcohol and drug use impair a jumper’s coordination and judgement. Loss of control and the risk of injuries are greatly increased. Individuals suspected of jumping while under such influences will be asked to leave the facility.
Do not jump on the trampolines if you have a pre-existing condition or injury. Women who are pregnant should not participate in jumping.
