There is an article in this weeks AB concerning safety on British fairgrounds and pleasure parks.This past season there were five (now six ) deaths at fairgrounds and parks as well as a series of major accidents.Apparently Britain's Health & Safety Excutive ( the equivilent to OSHA) is urging the industry to improve its safety measures.
