    Theme park accidents: Lack of safety provisions


    Ever since theme parks first opened their gates in the UK, Britons have held a fascination with the adrenaline-rush inducing rollercoasters and other theme park attractions. In order to produce the scariest rides and ultimate thrills, amusement park managers must balance the desires of customers and the need for safety measures to prevent theme park accidents.

    What are safety provisions?

    The term safety provisions refers to equipment or items which are used in order to reduce the chances of an accident. The exact nature of the equipment will depend on the industry in which it is in use. In the case of theme parks, this could refer to a safety net to reduce the chances of an accident from a slip, trip or fall from height, or could refer to more widely used safety provisions such first-aid kits and fire extinguishers.

    Are theme parks required to perform risk assessments?

    Just like any business, theme parks are required to carry out risk assessments to identify possible causes of theme park accidents. They are also required to take effective action to remedy these problems. These stringent health and safety measures are enforced by the local authority in conjunction with the Health and Safety Executive.
