Dear Health and Safety Executive,

For the period since 1 January 2016, please can you provide annual totals of the number of accidents involving inflatable play equipment. Please can you break the number of incidents down by accidents and by fatalities.

For the current year, please provide the statistics for the year to date.

By the term 'inflatable play equipment', I use the definition given on the HSE website at this page:
