We've done some of the research for you and provided links to
numerous articles, publications, photographs and government

CPSI background: Playground safety inspector certification classes
were developed by the National Park and Recreation Association's
NPSI and are based on the Consumer Products Safety
Commission's guidelines for public playground safety.
Playground Safety regulations in Michigan: The Michigan
Legislature passed The Playground Safety Act in 1997 that adopted
CPSC and ASTM guidelines in place at that time. SB0623 of 2007
has been introduced to amend the 1997 Act.
