IATP Advocacy & Trampoline Park State Regulations

 

 

IATP believes that legislative initiatives and lobbying efforts are necessary to ensure the long term success of the indoor trampoline park industry. Because of this, our efforts are directed at advocating for all parks to be safe by promoting industry supported responsible legislation that creates standards and regulations that protect both park owners and patrons alike.

2017 Legislatve Update

 

Utah - HB 300

Purpose: HB 300 requires trampoline parks in the state to meet minimum safety and inspection standards (from ASTM). This bill also allows municipalities and counties to enact ordinances to enforce provisions related to trampoline park business licenses and regulations.

This bill applies to recreational trampoline parks that receive revenue.

Simple provisions:
1. The operator must ensure that each participant receives instruction (in-person or video training) about potential risks and safety guidelines. All participants must sign a waiver that they have received the training.
2. The park will post safety and restriction signs in visible locations throughout the park.
3. Each staff member must be trained to respond to serious injuries, apply first aid and CPR, and know the park's rules.
4. Any injury will be documented and kept in an injury log by the park.
5. Once each calendar year, a certified inspector will inspect the park to see if the equipment is in good repair and the park meets the minimum standards set by Utah Code and local ordinances.
6. The park is required to have $1 million in life insurance.

Conclusion: The bill protects participants at trampoline parks by establishing basic safety practices.  It also protects families and the industry from bad actors that enter this market but do not comply with the standards and inspections.
