Is this really maintenance? 

Can you see this?
Can you see this?

I was called to a school to evaluate the repair needs of the school's playgrounds. To be kind, it was more than obvious that no maintenance had been conducted prior to my visit. The gentleman who replinishs sand under the equipment called their attention to the condition of the equipment. They called me. Yes, they knew the playground equipment needed some repair. They just did not know the extent.

I uncovered some installation errors on recent equipment, lack of maintenance on all equipment, damage to some equipment, etc... But no special training is necessary to see the broken picnic table on the playground. It is not nearly broken. It is not a little wobbly. This bench is no more. It is an ex-bench. Remove it immediately.
