Fun Productions' Inflatables at play

Did you know that at Fun Productions, Inc we consider safety to be extremely important? 

We have always exceeded the safety standards and manufacturer recommendations for safety.  It is this commitment to the highest standards that has made it possible for Fun Productions to be honored to say that we have never in our 12 years of renting inflatables had a major injury or accident. 

Not only do we research and train using the industry recognized safety guidelines, we are on the forefront of setting safety standards in Colorado.  We have testified before the Senate and have sat on committees to help define some ways that operators can safely provide amusement devices for special events. 

As a customer of inflatable devices please check that your operator is doing the following to insure that you will have a Fun and safe experience;

~Is the provider a licensed business in your state and/or city?

*Do they have a business license registered with the state?

*Do they have a sales tax license?

*Are the people who are setting up your event employees with Worker’s Comp and Unemployment Benefits or are they illegally paid under the table? If they are sub-contractors they may not be getting the proper training and they may not have any sense of liability.

~Is the provider insured? 

*They should have property, auto, work comp, unemployment and most importantly liability insurance with at least a million dollars of coverage.

~Do they address proper set-up? 

*Inflatables must be staked or weighted properly. If your provider does not address these issues you are putting yourself, your children and your guests at serious risk.

*Have they discussed power needs with you? Insufficient power may cause the unit to deflate and cause injury or accidents.

*Make sure the inflatable vendor includes a written guideline of all the rules, safety standards, wind limits, and weighting requirements.

There has been so much recent press about the risks, it is important for all of us here at Fun Productions to make sure our treasured clients know that we are committed to keeping you safe.
