Amusement Ride Safety Considerations

The operator / attendant of amusement rides has direct control over most rides and must be vigilant and able to respond rapidly to circumstances when they occur.

As a result of inspections, ride maintenance, safe operations and better ride designs, the safety record of the amusement ride industry has greatly improved, and ride operators / attendants play an important role in maintaining safety for amusement rides.

Most countries have laws on occupational health and safety intended to protect the health and safety of employees and the general public. Here is a discussion of the role that operators / attendants of amusement rides play in maintaining the highest possible level of safety on the rides they work on.

Operators / attendants of amusement rides should work safely, get as much training as possible in the safe operation of the equipment they are working with and remain alert to prevent safety hazards.

Operators / attendants of amusement rides should not engage in any unsafe activities such as horse-playing, show off, or any unseemly behavior while on the job.

Every operator / attendant of amusement rides is responsible for the safety at work. They are responsible for their own safety as well as for the safety of other employees and the public at large.

Here are a few basic rules for a safe workplace which should be practiced by amusement ride operators / attendants:

Make sure you know all the safety laws and procedures and follow them

Keep your atmosphere tidy, clean and secure

Report immediately hazardous situations which could lead to an accident

Complete the checklists before the trip is underway

Developing safe work habits and engaging in safety training

Additionally, there are a number of workplace hazards for which the operators / attendants of amusement rides should be on the look-out and attend to:

Anything that can cause people to travel

Something that could trigger people to knock their heads

Anything that can cause a splinter for someone

Anything which could cause somebody to fall

Something which can trigger a cut to someone

Amusement ride operators / attendants have to operate in effect in their area in compliance with the health and safety legislation. They will have to follow the rules and health protocols of their employers. We will always be sure when they’re sick of not running. Breaks should be removed from the ride to allow the operators / attendants of the amusement ride to relax properly, so that they can return to work refreshed and relaxed.

It is of utmost importance that amusement ride operators / attendants are thoroughly familiar with the rides they run. They should observe how the ride works, and the motions involved in their operation until they fully understand them.

Every ride has a safety zone, which is the place where the ride is run from. This safety zone is usually designated by the ride’s manufacturer or owner, and should be clearly defined and fenced off so that riders can easily identify it. The safety zone should also be an environment which is easily managed by the operators / attendants of amusement rides. The safety zone is for the personal safety of the operators / attendants of the amusement ride when the ride is in motion, and should never be left while the ride is in motion or until it has reached a full stop.
