Are you a parent of a child who likes trampoline parks?
Trampoline parks are not currently regulated in British Columbia.
This means there is currently no regulatory oversight of the equipment, facility design, staffing levels, staff training, or other aspects of these facilities. Safety measures are currently the sole responsibility of the facility owners and operators.
Because of reports of injuries at indoor trampoline parks, and a fatality in B.C. last year, some health authorities and the Union of BC Municipalities (UBCM) are calling on the Provincial Government to introduce regulations for this industry, with the goal of increasing public safety.
The Province has asked Technical Safety BC to conduct research and gather input from operators and users to make recommendations about whether regulation would increase safety.
We want to hear from parents of trampoline park users to understand expectations for safety, and what safety measures could be applied across all such facilities.
Thank you for providing your input through this short survey. Deadline extended! The deadline for the survey is now Wednesday April 24, 2019.
