All sites that are certified safe by LEAPS are free to use the LEAPS logo on their website and throughout their site to prove they are a competent operator.
No it is not, there is a legal requirement to have an item of work equipment inspected by a competent person but not to use LEAPS. However, LEAPS is considered as best practice and is authorised for use by all British Association of Leisure Parks, Piers and Attractions (BALPPA) sites.
LEAPS will certify any item of leisure equipment that is used by the public whether it’s a soft play area, high ropes course, aqua park, push bike or the most technologically advanced roller coaster. Nothing is considered off limits to LEAPS, if a member of the public is going to use the leisure equipment supplied by a LEAPS certified operator then it will be certified by LEAPS.
If you are an inspector or an operator of leisure equipment and you wish to become certified then the first steps are to download the relevant Scheme Operating Procedure pertinent to your services, complete the forms and submit them with any required supporting information.
LEAPS follows the system for safety of attractions as published by the Health and Safety Executive under HSG175 and the principles of this are applied across the leisure industries that LEAPS certifies making it the most robust, thorough and reliable scheme for all of your certification needs.
LEAPS operates a completely digital system with no paperwork being issued from LEAPS. A report of inspection is issued by each inspection body carrying out LEAPS inspections and this is referenced within the LEAPS digital system. You can check with LEAPS regarding individual certification of pieces of equipment or entire sites.
Your certification will expire at the earliest expiry date referenced within your report. As long as your inspections remain in date and never go beyond 12 months your certification will remain in place on a rolling basis meaning that you can manage your inspection resource to fit your business needs.
