A young girl died and 15 others were seriously injured when an inflatable jumping castle was hit and lifted by a strong wind gust in South Australia during a country race meeting in 2001. A number of other incidents around the country have occurred where young children have been injured partaking in activities involving inflatable jumping castle hire
December 2005, a two and a half year-old boy suffered a partial amputation of the tip of his third finger when he placed his hand into the exposed area of an electrically powered fan used to inflate a jumping castle. The amusement device had been set up for a Christmas party and left by the operators with no supervision procedures in place.
The purpose of this document is to emphasise to all owners and operators of commercial recreational inflatable jumping castles of the need to adequately secure such structures and ensure that all mechanical and electrical components are properly guarded and protected. Supervision must also be a paramount consideration when these devices are in use.
Jumping Castle hire and other like devices can either be classified as ones used for commercial purposes or ones that are purchased at department stores for home use. They are not deemed to be “prescribed equipment” for the purposes of the Equipment Public Safety Act 1994 and therefore are not subject to specific laws governing their usage and operation.
Jumping castle hire Australian Standard 3533.4.1- 2005 “Amusement Rides and Devices, Part 4.1 Specific requirements Land Borne inflatable devices” sets out requirements and guidance for the design, manufacture, operation and maintenance of land-borne inflatable amusement devices (such as jumping castles) that are static when in use. This standard covers those types of devices that are used commercially as part of an Jumping Castle hire entertainment or leisure activity business.
It should be noted that this standard is not applicable to inflatable toys that can be readily purchased at department stores. These devices however can be purchased by commercial operators and used for business purposes and hired out to the general public.
WorkSafe’s view is that regardless of category, all risk control measures advised in the Australian Standard should be considered and applied during the operation of all land-borne inflatable amusement devices such as jumping castles. This view applies to those described as “toys” also.
The biggest Jumping Castle hire risk involving inflatable devices, based on previous incidents, is their tendency to become airborne during strong wind gusts. The Australian Standard prescribes detailed anchorage methods, amongst other control measures, in order to make the use of these devices as safe as reasonably practicable.
All Jumping Castle hire inflatable devices must be able to withstand wind speeds of up to 40 km/h and must be evacuated when the wind speed goes beyond what is safely recommended by the manufacturer.
Operators must ensure that the appropriate anchorage methods are applied and that these are consistent with guidelines set out in the Australian Standard.
The standards require operators to consider the following:
- the number of anchorage points used and the forces they are able to sustain,
- no sharp or hard objects should be able to come in contact with children,
- material must meet flammability requirements,
- new design requirements to avoid built-in entrapment points where fingers, legs, arms or heads can become caught,
- Jumping Castle hire strict supervision requirements including monitoring the size and number of children on the device,
- requirements for appropriate impact absorbing materials at all exits, entrances and open sides.
Inflatable jumping castles, while operating, shall be under the supervision of a person at least 18 years of age, who is fully trained in all aspects of its safe operation. As well as monitoring the holding down requirements and weather conditions, this person shall ensure that an appropriate mix of persons use the device and that children are not in danger of injury from adults using the device at the same time. This person should also ensure that children and others do not interfere with the electrical or otherwise powered components of the device.

SAFETY RULES FOR JUMPING CASTLES Persons over 12 years of age are not permitted on the Jumping Castle and no more than 10 children at a time. A safe and sensible age and weight difference between children on the castle will be maintained at all times (ie, larger children will not be allowed on at the same time as much smaller children etc). What is defined as ‘safe’ and ‘sensible’ size differences should be based on the common sense discretion of the supervisor, who will be held responsible if their discretion in regulating this results in injury. Children are to remove their shoes & caps before entry to the Jumping Castle, and will not carry any sharp objects or other items which may potentially damage the Jumping Castle or injure another child (this includes but is not limited to jewellery, eye glasses, pens, pencils, belts, watches etc). Children will not take food, drink, gum, streamers, party poppers, sticky items, toys or pets onto the castle. Rubbish will be removed prior to pickup & any mud or stains cleaned. I agree that failure to do this (which will be determined by the discretion of the Lessor) will result in a $50 cleaning fee. Children are to be supervised closely at all times by myself or someone I authorize (and therefore accept responsibility for) to supervise them. This requires maintaining a close physical presence to the unit’s entrance and or slide, and periodically checking corners, blower(s) and electrical cords. 2 Children are to use the Jumping Castle only in a safe and appropriate manner. Any rough or dangerous behaviour (such as tackling, somersaults & flips etc) must be prevented. Safety mats will be kept at the entrance / exit at all times. Children are not to hang around the entrance or exit of the castle. They will enter the castle one at a time and will not go down a slide until the path is clear and no other children are at risk of being hurt. They will not lean, push or climb on the netting, nor will they be allowed to bounce on the front step. Any power leads or use of electricity has been set up and will be maintained in a safe manner at all times. Children must not to go near the power blower & must be prevented from touching power chords. The power blower must not be switched off until the castle is vacated. The jumping castle is to remain dry at all times to reduce risk of slipping. If the surface becomes wet, children will not be permitted to use it. In the event of rain or strong winds (exceeding 25km/h) all children must be vacated and power to the blower must be switched off. If this happens after the hire time begins, no refund is available. Once the castle has been set up by a representative from the hire company, its position must not be altered or moved. Animals are not allowed near the Jumping Castle at any time under any circumstance. Children should not use the Jumping Castle without their parents’ permission. 3 The anchor pegs, ropes, safety mats and blower fan must be checked periodically for obstruction or dislodgement and corrected where necessary. If uncertain, call the hire company immediately. People with casts, prostheses, injuries or any other kind of impairments should be prevented from using the castle. Any injuries which occur as a result of using the castle must be reported immediately to the Lessor. In the event that the blower loses power, keep everyone calm and instruct children to slowly exit the castle. A zip exit exists on the roof of most units. No one should assist in the lifting, wrapping or transport of the castle at any time. Children and pets will be kept clear during the installation and pack-up stage. The above safety rules will be exp
