OPERATIVE and SAFETY GUIDE LINES
These days it is imperative to put safety first. It also makes good sense to set up your equipment correctly, keeping your items in pristine condition, and saving money in the long run. The following information gives useful guidelines. Over a decade of hands on experience of hire and inflatable manufacture will followÖ
Need to employ staff?
Employ a responsible person over 18 years old and capable of exercising authority over children. Give them a whistle and make them shout! Make sure they show you proof of previous employment before you put them in charge. You will also need to have them checked for any previous convictions in the way of a CRB or what now is being introduced as the ISA www.isa-gov.org If they are using your equipment/ machines train them fully, donít leave anything to chance!
SETTING UP YOUR INFLATABLE
Select a level of grassed area and one thatís not directly over a path. It there is a concrete path then put a safety mat at the foot of the step over the path. Check for sharp objects, stones, glass etc., these could cause damage to the user and also to the equipment. Place a groundsheet/Tarpaulin down where you intend to operate. Once all is well, place the inflatable towards the back end of the tarpaulin and unroll. Spread out your inflatable before you inflate. Stake down the unit by the anchorage system provided with your inflatable. At this stage do not over tighten anchorage ropes; these will have final adjustments once the inflatable is fully inflated.
Connect blower to inflation tube with the cord provided making sure that the tube will not slip off the funnel, give it a tug! Then tie off all deflation tubes or close deflation zips Ė there will be zips all over the inflatable if its one of ours! Before you switch on, ask the resident/hirer if they have an up to date TRIP box and RCD. This reduces the risk of electrocution and itís imperative that all electrics at the mains are in good working order. Take a couple of RCDís in the van, it makes good sense.
If your inflatable is being erected in a park or any open space where the public who are not involved in the hire can wonder up to and onto the inflatable, put crowd control barriers in position. Inflating always attracts spectators. Place your control barrier around the inflatable at a distance of 6-8 feet (1.8m-2.5m) from any walled side of the unit and 12-15 feet (3.5m-4m) from any open side i.e. front of unit. A gateway approximately 3 feet (1m) in width is sufficient for user access and control. Height of barrier minimum 3 feet (1m). This will give you a clear operating and supervision area free of spectators.
Purchase a large ground sheet so that footwear can be left in front of the inflatable and parents are happy their childrenís socks stay clean!
Time to inflate. Observe the inflatable, ensure itís going up successfully. Observe above! For some reason we forget to look up at over hanging cables and tree branches, try and get in the habit of looking at the floor space as well as the space above your head before you even thinking about setting up.
When fully inflated, re adjust the ropes where necessary. Allow hardly any movement on anchorage ropes/stakes. If the inflatable moves too much it may cause damage by rubbing on the opposite stakes.
Always stake down. Most of the court claims are due to insufficient staking down. Manufacturers like us and those who follow safety guide lines, supply inflatables with sufficient amount of anchor bars, you must use all of them. We donít over cook the amount of bars we put on, the anchor bars are the correct amount for each inflatable sold, and therefore must all be used.
Now do a quick check. Does your inflatable seem firm.. test it and get on, if your worried get it tested for pressure by us! Once erected check it over for any problems i.e holes, broken stitching and failing anchor points etc. If you find a problem call us we are around 7 days a week doing the same thing!
Choose mats of a minimum of 2Ē thick. Use them in halls and outdoors when the ground is not protected by a lashing of soft grass. Place the mats on the floor to the front and to each side of the step once inflated. Push them under the step slightly so they stay in place for as long as possible. Tell the hirer to keep them in place. Maybe add this to your declaration that they sign before they hire!?
OPERATING ON HARD SURFACES
If the ground is not suitable for staking into, utilise the vehicles or heavy objects near the inflatable, or use very heavy objects to secure your inflatable to i.e. ballast bags etc.
The operator/supervisor should ensure that all children have removed their footwear and any sharp or dangerous objects from their person such as pens, buckles, badges, purses etc. Spectacles are best removed.
Do not allow children to bounce and play on the front inflatable step. The step is to assist the children when climbing into the inflatable and walking off it. The step also assists in the prevention of falling off the bouncer. Sitting on the step could result in the bouncing child landing on the child who is sitting/laying or playing on this step. Do not allow the children to climb or hang on or over the walls. Our shower covers are stitch in so this mainly applies to bouncers with no shower covers. At the start of a session make sure the children go on in an orderly manner and not all in one go. Select the recommended amount of users. You will find this information on the front step!
The operator must watch the activity on the inflatable continuously. Using a whistle is very effective or a loud device to attract the attention of boisterous behaviour. Keep the young bouncer separate from the older one. The older ones can wait 5 minutes, giving them a chance to be calm before they go on. Never be worried to make youngster come off and take time out if they are not behaving. Catch a potential accident before it happens!
The number of users at any one time should be limited to that figure which allows each child enough room to play safely. Since larger children need more room to play itís obvious that numbers should be significantly less than the number of small children allowed on.
NEVER ALLOW ADULTS AND CHILDREN TO USE THE BOUNCER AT THE SAME TIME.
No reason to elaborate here!
Adults have the brains of small children when using bouncy castles sometimes! Add it to your contract/signed booking form and tell your staff to be firm with adults.
Take with you spare PVC and glue. If small holes appear in the inflatable, patch them up as a temporary job. Round all corners of the PVC patch to discourage picking. Glue patch and also put glue on the inflatable and leave for 2-3 mins. Match together and press firmly. Contact us immediately after the days hirer for advice.
ROLLING AND STORING
Before turning off, check it over. Remove the smallest thing. Once rolled up anything thatís left inside will possibly mould and then this mould will spread throughout! If you roll up wet, itís not a problem but you MUST air within 1-2 weeks in the summer and 3 weeks in the winter (cold storage). If you find your unit has mould, it will lift off with our PVC cleaner but there maybe staining left on light coloured PVC which will be permanent.
If you leave your inflatable out over night with no tarpaulin over the top of it and it rains, the water will get inside. Once itís inside it is impossible to remove for weeks unless you leave it up with zips open on a hot day. Leaving it out over night will effect your warranty.
If you are employing staff be careful the amount they are carrying. 25kg is the max load. Garden Inflatables average out at 100kg each. Use more than one person to roll load.
Ensure your inflatables are tested annually, call us on 01923 270940 and we will be happy to PIPA or factory test yours.
a. Check the plug and wiring for wear or chaffing.
b. Secure inlet and outlet air grills for dangerous moving parts.
c. Security of the impellor fixing and hairline cracks.
d. Secure outer casing fixings.
e. Electrical check for earth leakage and continuity.
You must have a current certificate of insurance covering you for Public Liability and it is advisable to have cover for fire, theft, damage, etc. These days £5million is the normal requested amount.
