* Training and Supervision
No child or adult, should be allowed to attempt complicated tumbling such as summersaults, when they have not had adequate training. Incorrect landing positions can cause serious and disabling injuries. Supervision should be provided for everyone who is learning to use a trampoline for first time.
Ideally, there should be someone on hand who can instruct them in simple maneuvers, and who is also versed in first aid for injuries. Alternately, it may benefit everyone, to join a gym for a class in proper trampoline use, including mounts and dismounts.
* One At a Time
The chance of injury soars when more than one person gets on a trampoline at same time. This can be result of collisions, or upsetting another person's balance, causing them to fall. Unless you are a trained "spotter", all others waiting a turn, should stand away from trampoline while someone else is using it.
