Buy padding to cover the springs, hooks and frame of the trampoline; look for pads that are of a contrasting color to the mat of the trampoline
Use something to cushion the surrounding area of the trampoline - as well as underneath

Institute a "one-at-a-time" rule for jumping
Ensure children are supervised at all times
Set up your trampoline away from structures, trees or other play areas
Take a moment to inspect the trampoline prior to every use
