Safety - Helping Kids Play Safe

Unfortunately in the inflatable play industry it is increasingly common that uninsured and unqualified opportunist hirers are operating equipment that is unsafe or unsuitable for hire. These 'fly by night' hirers are a risk both to your children and to the reputation of the industry as a whole.

All new castles we acquire are safety tested at manufacture and all castles are inspected regularly to ensure they continue to meet health and safety requirements. Don't just take our word for it, however. Feel free to call or email us regarding safety. Event Supplies Ltd is fully compliant with all Health and Safety Regulations that are relevant to our business and all of our inflatables are manufactured and maintained to comply with Health and Safety Executive guidance notes (Entertainment Sheet 7). All electrical equipment we hire is tested annually by a certified Portable Appliance Tester. Risk assessments are available for all hire units upon request.

If you are looking around at other hire firms, make sure your children are not put at risk from faulty equipment. Ask the following questions to be sure:

  • Do you carry out daily checks on the equipment as required by EIS7?
  • When was the equipment last fully inspected?
  • Will I get full instructions on the safe operation of the equipment?
  • Are you a member of a relevant association? (AIMODS, NAIH or BIHA?)
  • Do you have Public Liability Insurance?
