CSA and ASTM Standards require compliance to performance requirements for the prevention of injury. CPA provides laboratory test certificates for testing at ambient temperatures for swinging element testing, pole vault landing mats and box collars, crash pads and other systems that are designed to be impact attenuating. For playground and sport fields CPA offers compliance inspections to CSA Z614 and ASTM F1936 and will provide certificates of compliance for those systems that meet the Standards. Compliance testing will utilize the Triax2010, Triax2015, depth, vertical change in level, and calibrate planarity gauges to accurately measure performance. Other probes and devices will be used where a specific standard requires.
Canadian Playground Advisory Inc., provides and independent training package covering the tools it manufactures and the impact attenuation requirements of various standards around the work, including coverage of the Alpha Automation Inc. the manufactured of the Triax2000, Triax2010 and TRIAX 2015. Independently we have been asked to provide a list of persons and agencies meeting the training requirements of ASTM F1292 for impact and depth testing and accessibility.
The users of this list could be determining compliance of a protective surface for contract compliance, warranty compliance, the US DOJ 2010 ADA Accessibility Standard, the US CPSC section 2.4 of the Handbook for Public Playground Safety, or determination of a cause of a Serious Injury, ASTM F1487 or the CSA Z614 Standards.
This voluntary list contains names of persons who have completed the training as required in ASTM F1292 section 7 and provided by Canadian Playground Advisory Inc. and/or have the Triax2000, Triax2010 or Triax2015 within current calibration. As a result they should be able to perform inspections that will meet legal requirements of ASTM F1292. To assist the user of the testing to better understand the performance of the inspections we are providing an outline of the procedures to perform an ADA playground inspection and the procedure and report content for a surface test to ASTM F1292 or ASTM F3313. We are also providing sample of a test report that contains all of the content required for the field testing report in ASTM F1292. This report is being made available under license to persons on the list of trained inspectors and it is recommended that particularly persons wanting inspections that would be reviewed by a government agency to use the standard form assist the reviewer with consistency in their work
These lists and documents are being provided as a service and shall not be construed as an endorsement of any person or agency and the user must perform their due diligence as to the ability of the person to meet other contractual requirements. Note that the lists will be reposted quarterly to include additional persons who have been trained and agree to join this offering or agencies having purchased, calibrated or agree to add their unit to the list. Persons and agencies can be removed from the list should they not perform inspections to the expectations of their training or have failed to keep their Triax2000 or Triax2010 within the calibration requirements.
This list is being provided at the sole discretion of Canadian Playground Advisory Inc. and there is not warranties expressed or implied and persons and agencies included are listed at the sole discretion of Canadian Playground Advisory Inc.
