Sector plan for health and safety in fairgrounds and theme parks
This sector covers fixed theme and leisure parks and travelling fairs. Public safety is the principal concern, with a key focus on controlling the risks for riders from machines, particularly those arising from potential failure or incorrect operation of large, higher-risk rides.
Risks to workers from workplace transport, work on electrical and mechanical equipment, working at heights and operating equipment and large plant also need to be managed as they have the potential to cause significant harm.
This plan covers the current position, priorities and what HSE will do to help Great Britain work well.
