A Health and Safety Executive prosecution is being brought following the death of an 11-year-old girl at Drayton Manor theme park.
On 9 May 2017, Evha Jannath died after falling from the park’s Splash Canyon water ride.
Drayton Manor Park Ltd of Drayton Manor Drive, Tamworth, Staffordshire will face a charge under Section 3 of the Health and Safety at Work etc. Act.
The criminal proceedings have not yet commenced, because an inquest into Evha’s death, due to be heard in November, needs to take place first.
HSADD SAY’S – there cannot be anything worse in the world than taking your child to a theme park and then not being able to take them home, it is truly heartbreaking.
From a legal perspective, the theme park will be expected to produce lots of documents and checklists to ensure that the staff have been trained and that they have complied with the equipment checks on a daily basis they will have pages and pages of A4 checklists to get together.
With www.isitchecked.com these records are not only easier to complete, faster to complete and half the costs, but they are also more thorough and cannot be lost. In addition, the Management is notified when an important check has NOT been made.
Any organisation which has children present for events or children’s clubs, childminders, have to take into account that they must keep the records until the children they are looking after are over 21 years of age, whereas a business catering for over 18’s would only be restricted to 3-4 years, in these cases a Company could be storing paper – and lots of it for 20 years plus.
