Abstract:   (40 Views)
Background/aim: Health, safety, and environmental status of the parks are important issues that must be addressed before accidents and the resulted complications. Given the importance of safety for people, especially children in parks and, on the other hand, regarding the traditional approach for managing urban parks in Iran, which focuses on the problems after a crisis and the associated significant physical and financial losses, this study attempted to systematically review the health, safety, and environmental (HSE) status of the urban parks in Iran.
Methods: A systematic search for the studies published in Persian until 2018 was conducted using Google Scholar, SID, and MagIran databases. Health and safety status were assessed using the factors, including sense of safety, legible design, physical safety, lighting, physical accessibility, environment, special facilities, and health safety. Other information was collected using a questionnaire.
Results: Twelve studies were included in the review. The results showed that the HSE status of the urban parks in Tehran and in other major cities of Iran was poor to moderate. In other cities, the poor HSE status was also observed.
Conclusion: Considering the poor HSE conditions of the urban parks in Iran, the implementation of a comprehensive HSE management program is recommended.
