In the latest edition of our weekly playground safety quiz, we’re asking you to spot those offenders.

If you’re worried about the safety of your kids, it’s worth knowing what the signs are and how to spot them.
There are different types of signs:The first, often the easiest, are the signs that you don’t need to see or touch.
They are generally marked with the words ‘not for use’ or ‘for use with child safety’ and a picture of the offending object.
They say nothing about the dangers involved and it is up to parents to decide what is appropriate for their children.
They don’t tell you whether or not they are in place, but they are designed to show you what to look out for, which could include signs that say ‘not permitted’ or have ‘no children present’.
The next, harder sign is the ‘dangerous’ one, which tells you exactly what to do if you see one.
If it says ‘danger’ it’s probably a safe spot, but if it says anything about danger then it’s a potentially dangerous spot, and you should get to a safe place to play before you go.
In addition to these signs, there are also ‘notice and warning’ signs.
These are clearly written on the side of the playground, and tell you if they’re needed and are there for you to see.
If they’re there, then you should leave them alone.
They should also be at least 10cm (4in) above the ground, and should be clear of any children.
The last sign is an ’emergency warning’ sign, and these tell you that there is a problem and you need to leave immediately.
If a problem has happened and you see a warning sign, leave immediately, because you don�t want to be stuck in this situation again.
If you’re concerned about your children, you can check for safety signs by asking your child’s principal, teachers, or principal’s assistant, and checking in with them.
You can also ask a friend or relative to help you.
