Are your bleachers and stadium seating up to code? There are new requirements for bleacher safety, and any facility with bleachers and public seating (indoor or outdoor), must be inspected annually.
The Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) recommends the following bleacher safety guidelines:
-Provide routine inspection and maintenance -Install bleacher guard rails as a safety precaution and as an indication that the bleachers are fully extended -A licensed professional engineer, registered architect, or company that is qualified to provide bleacher products and services should inspect the bleachers and provide a written certification that the bleachers are fit for use -The option of replacing bleachers as opposed to retrofitting should be considered
Inspections should be put as a major priority on your list every year to ensure safety of your students, faculty, and spectators. These are only a few of the many reasons for inspections. BROC preaches this importance every day and is a value held close to every member of the team. Help us spread the wealth of information there is to be learned around making facilities safe.
