1) Annual Safety Testing (& The PIPA myth Explained)

The ONLY legal requirement for the safety inspecting of bouncy castles and inflatables is to comply with The Provision and Use of Work Equipment regulations 1998 (PUWER).

PIPA is NOT the law - PUWER IS the law!

This states that you MUST HAVE an annual inspection carried out by a competent person. The HSE themselves do not and will not officially recommend any specific body. All they specify is if the test was carried out by a competent person and as such we use the brand BETTER BOUNCE DIRECT

As part of this testing, The tester must be able to demonstrate that the inflatable is manufactured in accordance with the latest BS/EN14960 Regulations, which ensures inflatables are safe in design and manufacture, are Flame retardant and fit for purpose as well as ensuring the inflatables are in a good state of repair. PIPA testing is therefore not the law, whereas the company’s adherence to PUWER is the law.

PIPA is simply a brand of testing and despite popular belief, not compulsory. This confusion is lead mainly by PIPA being one of the first bodies to offer testing of inflatables and has become a household name in the same way the we use the word “Hoover” when in fact we are referring to the “Vacuum Cleaner” or the word “Tannoy” when we are referring to a public address system (PA).

One of the main reasons we do not use PIPA is that PIPA is only in place to reflect safety of bouncy castles & inflatables designed solely for Bouncing & Sliding and not really adequate for a company as large and diverse as ourselves. Gladiator Duels, Assault courses, Bungee Runs, Knock out inflatables, Pillow bashes, Bouncy Boxing, Human table football, Human Bowling and most of the other items on our website do not qualify for testing by PIPA.

In absence of any further laws we opt to use the brand BETTER BOUNCE DIRECT, We do this because of the following reasons:

  • The company has been around for over 25 years gaining an almost Unraivelled level of competence.
  • They issue safety inspections certificates independently that comply with PUWER.
  • The company issue every inflatable with a unique serial number to enable tracking even after sale.
  • Each certificate comes with a log book and a service history section so you can track its history (like a car)
  • They are members of The British Inflatable Hirers Association (BIHA)
  • They are members of The Inflatable Play Enterprise (TIPE)
  • They have completed The Registered Play Inspectors International training day.
  • They are open 7 days a week for verification of certificates on 0113 2574483 or by email on: betterbounceebay@gmail.com

More importantly, ALL our inflatables are tested by Betterbounce Annually and we have a complete record of in house weekly testing and maintenance schedules. To view our test, please email us and we will be happy to provide you with our records.

I must also point out that we are fortunate enough to have had our Health and Safety & testing regime inspected by the HSE themselves and they are 100% happy with our proceedings.

I trust this helps settle any issues you may have.

2) Risk Assessments

Although not compulsory, It is strongly recommended that any person organising an event undertakes a risk assessments of the entire site, especially if you are expecting a large number of excited attendees all in one area.
