A number of initiatives have been undertaken in Manitoba to help prevent falls in children.

Triax loan program

A Triax is a device that measures the impact absorbency of playground surfaces to help playground operators maintain a safe level of surface material. The City of Winnipeg operates a loan program where trained staff from outside organizations can borrow the Triax to test their playgrounds. For more information, email: jbell@winnipeg.ca.

Safety action guides

Active and Safe Kids Manitoba have developed family and community action guides to raise awareness about injuries and help families and communities improve safety when cycling, skateboarding, ice skating and playing at playgrounds.
