This time of year kids love playing outside, and many homeowners have trampolines for them to jump on. It can be a lot of fun, but there are many injuries every year, mostly due to trampolines not being used in a safe way. While your children might want to pile on as many kids as possible on the trampoline at the same time, this is not the safe thing to do. In reality, whenever more than one person is jumping on a trampoline the risk of injury goes way up. It is very common that injuries are due to two people bouncing into or onto each other.
Another danger is with trampolines that aren’t surrounded by a protective barrier. Falling off a trampoline can be very painful, especially if there is hard ground around it.
Jumping from an elevated location can be very dangerous as well since your children could go flying off the trampoline in the opposite direction.
