All they specify is if the test was carried out by a competent person and as such we use an independent competent inspector. 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.
Risk Assessments
Although not compulsory, it is strongly recommended that any person organizing 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. A risk assessment will not eliminate the risks but will assist the organizers to identify any potential hazards and manage the risks accordingly.
