Ohio Amusement Park Company Fined $142K for Safety Violations


The parent company for Ohio’s Cedar Point amusement park has been fined over $140,000 for safety violations.

The Blade reports the $142,270 fine by the Occupational Safety and Health Administration stems from an April 11 incident where an employee was seriously injured in a fall from a park building. According to OSHA, the worker fell through a skylight and landed on a concrete floor.
Authorities say the park does not provide a guard rail or restraint system on the roof to the injured worker and the other two crew members. Officials say they are not trained to recognize the dangers falling to the workers.

Cedar Fair spokesman Tony Clark said the company was reviewing the documents.

The Company may make the auditor’s findings before the review commission.
