(HealthDay News) -- Playground burns from hot equipment are common, and they can occur even on days that aren't very hot.

The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission suggests:

  • Watch for any uncoated metal equipment, or equipment with worn coating.
  • Beware of swings, slides and other equipment where a child sits.
  • Use caution around plastic and rubber materials that are dark. Darker colors attract more heat.
  • Be careful on concrete and asphalt surfaces near the playground.
