PULLMAN, Wash. — Washington State University’s Camp Larson is offering a Playground Safety Institute this weekend as part of its 1998 Institute Series.
The program, scheduled for Friday and Saturday, April 17-18, will address specific supervisory and risk management concerns related to public playground safety.
Each year, approximately 140,000 children in the country receive emergency room treatment for public playground equipment injuries, according to The National Program for Playground Safety.
The institute begins at 4:30 p.m. on Friday and runs through 3 p.m. the following day. Anyone interested in more information about the institute can contact the Camp Larson office directly at 335-1875 or by e-mail at camplarson@wsu.edu.
