Sealed inflatables: Safe supply, inspection, and operation

Sealed inflatables are becoming more numerous and their range of applications is increasing. Typical devices include:

  • trampolines

  • mobile base units for water walkers or battery boats

  • crash barriers for battery-operated bumper car devices or go-karts

  • floating static platforms

  • climbing and jumping frames

They can place users and operators at risk of serious harm in circumstances such as the uncontrolled or explosive release of pressurised air, or losing the device in high winds. HSE Guidance includes information on:

  • legal requirements to make sure that sealed inflatables are correctly designed, maintained, and operated safely

  • roles involved in keeping sealed inflatables safe

  • essential documentation required

  • the responsibilities of controllers, operators, and inspection bodies
