Health Tip: Avoid Burns From Playground Equipment

(HealthDay News) -- Materials used in modern playgrounds, often plastics and rubber, can get very hot in the summer sun and are capable of burning a child's skin, the Consumer Product Safety Commission says.

The agency offers parents this advice:

  • A child can get a thermal burn even in mild weather.
  • Watch for uncoated metal equipment, dark-colored plastics, asphalt and concrete surfaces.
  • Check the temperature of the playground equipment.
  • Dress your child in appropriate clothing.
  • Always watch children when they are at the playground.
