What safety precautions are in place with Nerf Games

  • All Nerf guns must have the "CE" marking on Nerf guns, as well as on many other products, stands for "Conformité Européenne," which is French for "European Conformity." It is a certification mark that indicates a product's compliance with European Union (EU) health, safety, and environmental protection standards.

    When you see the CE marking on a Nerf gun, it means that the manufacturer or distributor has declared that the product meets all the applicable requirements of the relevant European Directives. This marking is mandatory for products sold within the European Economic Area (EEA) and demonstrates that the product has undergone appropriate testing and meets the necessary safety standards.

    In the context of Nerf guns, the CE marking assures consumers that the product has been designed and manufactured to meet certain safety criteria and can be legally sold within the EU market. It's important to look for this marking on products you purchase, as it indicates a level of regulatory compliance.

  • Only foam darts (bullets) will be used.
  • Eyewear needs to be always worn whilst in the activity areas or outside activity areas whilst a game is running. These are worn just in case a bullet is fired above shoulder height or misfired out of an activity area
  • A maximum of 10 children can only be involved in an activity at a time. 
  • As a rule, do not aim for the head. Instead, always shoot for the body – shoulders and below. Shooting from an arm’s length should be discouraged.
  • Clear safety zones will be in place and Nerf guns should be returned to safety zones and / or
    equipment areas safely and unloaded. 
  • Thorough risk assessments will be in place for this activity alone just like all sports/activities we deliver. 
  • All staff delivering the Nerf game sessions will hold Paediatric first aid
  • Children will be shown how to safely use the Nerf guns and once competent can participate in the activity. 
  • All equipment will be checked at the start and end of each session.
