Man injured after fall from fairground ride

5th May 2010 | Health and Safety Signs

A man suffered minor injuries when he fell from a fairground ride in Chester earlier this week, underlining the importance of safety signs.

The young adult was riding on the 'Super Bob' attraction at the Little Roodee car park at just before 16:00 BST on Monday (May 3rd) when the accident occurred.

According to the Chester Chronicle, the Health and Safety Executive (HSE) is now liaising with police and the fairground operator to compile more information about the incident.

"We will make initial inquiries and then we will make a case as to whether or not there are grounds for an investigation," HSE regional spokesman David Harris told the news provider.

The ride sees passengers sitting in small cars which travel around a circular track at considerable speed, with safety bars on each one for protection.

Last week, a specialist bread manufacturer was fined £3,500 and ordered to pay £2,926 in costs after one of its workers suffered an amputated finger in an accident involving a dough mixing machine.
