When we think about a bouncy castle, we visualize kids jumping on it relentlessly. We generally do not think about grave consequences. But if you are planning for a jumping castle party, you should act responsibly. You should interrogate the operator about their safety practices, certificates and authorizations they possess and should also oversee the inflatable castle riders during the party. Ensuring safety and security for the bounce house users is not a bothersome job, provided you follow some simple instructions and implement best practices. Next time when you go for hiring a bouncy castle hire agency, you should keep in mind these instructions.
Keep in mind that the castle should be anchored at least two meters away from sharp substances (e.g. fences etc.). Why this is important? This is because riders may fall of the castle and these sharp objects would intensify their injuries.
You must check the trouser pockets and shirt pockets of every kid who is eager to ride the castle so as to ensure that they do not take any sharp object inside the castle. Sharp objects can cause severe injuries.
Make certain that children of the same age group ride on the castles. Children of different age groups and height should not be allowed to ride together. It can cause injuries to smaller kids. Some bouncy castle hire agencies put these practices in their agreement terms and conditions.
Allowing food and drinks is also not imperative. If the kids eat foods during jumping on inflatable castles, it can choke their esophagus. Some adults want to ride on these castles with glasses and bottles. If these items are broken, it would beget serious accidents and other consequences.
You should always oversee the children who use the castles. If any of the kids gets naughty, tell him politely not to do so because it may bring about dangers to himself and the other riders. If the kid still does not pay heed to you, do not hesitate to take him or her out of the castle as because as an adult, it is always your responsibility to make sure that the kids play safely.
Strictly follow the instructions of the manufacturers. You are likely to get a complete set of instructions from the jumping castle hire agency from whom you take the castle. If the company does not provide you with a set of guidelines, ask how many kids can ride on the castle they are providing and other details. Remember abrupt deflation is a possible consequence of too many riders using the castle.
Riders should not enter the castle wearing spectacles, ring, belt and other pointed accessories.
