Proactive testing on sports surfaces, play areas and recreational surfacing is vital in making sure it is first and foremost safe and secondly that it has the best performance characteristics.
The majority of sports surfacing lacks maintenance and because of this it can make the surface slippery, hard and unsafe which basically leaves the owner or pitch occupier open to lawsuits, claims and being sued.
So why should you carry out annual testing for your sports pitch? :
(1) Annual testing demonstrates a serious and proactive commitment to safety
(2) Fields rarely become unsafe overnight, so testing once a year should provide adequate warning of emerging safety issues
(3) Annual testing generates a meaningful historical record – a record that can be important if warranty or liability issues arise
(4) Testing once a year isn’t a “budget buster”
