New Australian standard for permanently installed outdoor fitness equipment
Standards Australia recently adopted AS16630:2021 Permanently installed outdoor fitness equipment - Safety requirements and test methods, a adapted version of the European Standard EN 16630:2015.
This Standard specifies general safety requirements for the manufacture, installation, inspection and maintenance of permanently installed, freely accessible outdoor fitness equipment. It is recommended that Council’s review their existing management systems and processed for public park and recreational areas to ensure they align with the new Standard where appropriate.
