||HSE Books, P.O. Box 1999, Sudbury, Suffolk CO10 2WA, United Kingdom, Sep. 2007. vi, 65p. Illus. 48 ref. Price: GBP 12.50.
||Although fairgrounds and amusement parks are relatively safe compared to activities such as driving a car or riding a bicycle, there have yet been a small number of serious incidents involving employees and members of the public. The Health and Safety Executive has worked with the Fairgrounds and Amusement Parks Joint Advisory Committee to improve standards and to produce this revised guide which incorporates improvements made over several years in this industry's practices. It deals with the safety of employers, employees and the general public using fairgrounds and amusement parks and gives advice on controlling risks, site layout and safe systems of work. It also provides information and guidance on fairground ride design, manufacture, installation, operation, maintenance and inspection. Replaces CIS 01-715.
