A few words on precautions

In a poll conducted in June 2020 among 663 parents who have a child under the age of 12 and who own a trampoline, fifty percent of the parents said that their child had harmed themselves while using the trampoline. The majority of victims suffered from bruising, which was followed by sprains and then fractures.

When your children are using the trampoline, you should never leave them unattended, but you should also keep in mind that even when they are supervised, accidents can still occur, so you should also keep these additional regulations in mind as well:

On the trampoline, there should be no more than one youngster at a time. According to the Royal Society for the Prevention of Accidents (RoSPA), sixty percent of trampoline injuries occur when there is more than one person using the trampoline at the same time. We are aware that this may be a bit of a sticking point, as part of the fun for kids is bouncing on the trampoline together, but it is important to keep in mind that this statistic.
There will be no bouncing exits. It may seem like a no-brainer, but a popular way for children to injure themselves is by jumping off a trampoline directly into the ground below them.
No somersaults. Children should not attempt somersaults unless they have been properly instructed to do so because there is a great probability that they will land incorrectly.
Children younger than six years old are not allowed to use the trampoline unless it is a model that has been constructed with the needs of younger children in mind. Young children, particularly those under the age of six, are not yet physically mature enough to tolerate the bouncing movement and are therefore more prone to damage.
