Cedar Fair Fined

Recommended Posts

But, this one piece of the article might speak volumes.

 

The federal regulatory agency said Cedar Fair of Sandusky failed to train employees to shut off power before performing maintenance work on the Slingshot ride so the safety procedure was not followed. Regulators also said Cedar Fair did not properly train employees in safety measures when they are exposed to moving parts on the Slingshot.

And what does an OSHA proposed fine have to do with this? Employees are covered by workers' compensation, and generally CANNOT successfully sue their employer for workplace injuries absent willful and wanton intentional employer caused injury and/or gross negligence.

And OSHA fines are typically very small, usually reduced in negotiations, and/or on appeal. And they go to OSHA, NOT employees.

Rich?

Company plans to appeal.

seams like Cedar Fair is being fined for stuff that I would not expect, it seems like the Maintenance guy who was retrieving the cell phone, didn't follow the wait until park close rule, I don't know the rules in California though
