All bouncy castles and other inflatables must comply with the Health and Safety Executive PIPA Regulations and Guidance on ‘Inflatable Play Equipment’ such as castles, slides and domes.
Only employ suitably experienced and trained adult personnel, where the company is responsible for setting up, inspection, operation and supervision of the bouncy castle. If you are to operate the bouncy castle ensure that you are provided with written instructions about the safe setting up, inspection, operation and supervision of the equipment, and that the name and address of the manufacturer or supplier is clearly marked upon it, along with the ‘manufactured date’. You must also ensure that the Annual Inspection Certificate is available and that the certificate covers ALL of the equipment it is required to.
Additional guidance can be found on the PIPA Inflatable Play Inspection Scheme website.
