Safety Information

The US Consumer Product Safety Commission has published the following safety guidelines regarding the use of trampolines. As the owner or user of a trampoline, you should be aware of these guidelines and government recommendations, and abide by them at all times.


Injuries and deaths can be caused by:

  • Colliding with another person on the trampoline
  • Landing improperly while jumping or doing stunts on the trampoline
  • Falling or jumping off of the trampoline
  • Falling on the trampoline springs or frame

Take these steps to help prevent tragic deaths and serious trampoline injuries, especially paralysis, fractures, sprains, and bruises:

  • Allow only one person on the trampoline at a time.
  • Do not attempt or allow somersaults, because landing on the head or neck can cause paralysis.
  • Do not use the trampoline without shock-absorbing pads that completely cover its springs, hooks and frame.
  • Place the trampoline away from structures, trees and other play areas.
  • No child under 6 years of age should use a full-size trampoline.
  • Do not use a ladder with the trampoline, because it provides unsupervised access by small children.
  • Always supervise children who use a trampoline.
  • Trampoline enclosures can help prevent injuries from falls off trampolines.

If you have additional questions, you should contact the US Consumer Product Safety Commision at 800-638-2772,, or
