The Agency was critical of some centres putting up signs saying it took no legal responsibility for any injuries sustained at the site.
The inspections found several climbing frames for children constructed so the user could be trapped by the head or neckn, and risk suffocation. There have also been reports of concussions and skull fractures when children have taken a tumble.
Anna Ekegren says, "This is very serious and needs to be remedied. These leisure centres are a relatively new phenomenon in Sweden and we have spent a lot of time on informing them about what they need comply with. In their turn, they have been very engaged and positive to the controls we've done."
She also said that the commercial centres have responsibilities for the construction and design but parents still needed to be vigilant and attentive to their playing children.
