    Fairgrounds and Amusement Parks:

    Guidance on Safe Practice HSG 175

    The fairgrounds and amusement parks joint advisory committee (FJAC) has worked for over 25 years to continually improve standards and the exchange of information. Fairgrounds and amusement parks have been shown to be relatively safe compared to such activities as driving a car or riding a bicycle, but there have been a small number of serious accidents involving the general public and employees. Risks can never be eliminated from any aspect of life but need to be managed effectively. This new edition of Fairgrounds and amusement parks: Guidance on safe practice HSG175, first published in 1997 was recommended in the health and safety commission (HSC) review of fairground safety (2001) and incorporates improvements over several years in this industry’s practices.

    This document concentrates on the safety of employers, employees and the general public using fairgrounds and amusement parks, and gives advice on measures to control risks. It provides duty holders with advice on issues relating to attractions, including operation, maintenance, repairs, and modifications. It also includes advice on site layout and safe systems of work. There is a glossary at the end of the book which explains the terms used.

    About ADIPS
    The Amusement Device Inspection Procedures Scheme (ADIPS) has developed over the years since the early 1970’s. With the advent of the Health & Safety at Work etc. Act of 1974 came various moves to increase the standard of safety on fairgrounds and amusement parks.
    The Home Office developed and published the “Home Office Guide to Safety at Fairs (The “Blue Book”) in 1976. This included information relating to the inspection of amusement devices and also technical requirements relevant to companies specialising in ride design and specification.
    The “Code of Safe Practice at Fairs” was introduced in 1984, providing further guidance to individuals and organisations.

    The HSE set up the Joint Advisory Committee (JAC) for Safety in the Fairground and Theme Park Industry. This is made up of representation from the Associations involved in the Ride Industry, but did not include the inspection side of the industry or the manufacturers.
    Having recognised the need for input from these areas, NAFLIC (National Association for Leisure Industry Certification) was formed to represent those involved in these sections of the Industry on various panels including the JAC.

    NAFLIC produced Technical and Incident Bulletins to disseminate information to the areas of the Industry as required and also dealt with other sectors. Following the introduction of HSG 175 “Fairgrounds and Amusement Parks – Guidance on Safe Practice”, NAFLIC maintained the register of those Inspection Bodies who claimed compliance with the new scheme (ADIPS). This scheme received the backing of SGGB, BALPPA, BACTA, SIRPS, ACES, AIS, and NAFLIC.
    Following a number of incidents at various locations, the Roberts Review of Safety was published by HSC. Following recommendations made in this report, it was recognised that a system of monitoring the DOC’s (Declaration of Operational Compliance) was urgently needed.

    NAFLIC funded and set up the ADIPS DOC Bureau to fulfil this requirement in 2002.

    By 2003, a decision had been made to form a limited company to administer the scheme and to be the commercial arm of the Amusement Device Safety Council (ADSC). This "not for profit" company would take over most areas previously administered by NAFLIC, including the Registration of the Inspection Bodies and handling of complaints.

    ADIPS Limited has now achieved ISO 9001 Registration and will continue to work in the development of standards and working practices aimed at the ongoing improvement of safety and control within the Amusement Ride Industry
