· Ask our Competitors:
Be sure to ask for a copy of their liability and WC&EL insurance policies, as well as the contact information of their insurance brokers to verify that the policies are currently effective and are in good standing.
· Ask our Competitors: Request fire and safety information to ensure that the supplier’s materials meet required safety standards.
· Ask our Competitors: Inquire if they have experience in dealing with engineering firms for their play structures and if they have experience with firms that can certify to local requirements. Certain states, provinces and countries require specific engineering certifications, such as California due to earthquake building codes. It is imperative that supporting documentation sent to engineers and government officials is complete and accurate, to avoid potential liability.
· Ask Our Competitors: Inquire about manufacturing standards and request product safety information to ensure that local and national standards can be met.
· Ask Our Competitors: Ask for information on the supplier to gauge if they will be around for a long time to come.
