How to ensure the safety of theme park rides?

rides safety is paramount in theme parks. We often say that safety is “1” and the others are “0”. Only with the “0” after this “1” can it be valuable, the popularity, profit, and profit are meaningful after safety. If there is a problem with security, the others are all zero. Therefore, it is necessary to be foolproof in terms of safety, otherwise, “one loss is nothing”. Safety first, prevention first is our principle, mainly in the following four aspects:

We implement a three-level management network: networking, systematization, and standardization. We set up a safety management office on the basis of Suzhou Amusement Park Industry Group, and there are five people specially to inspect and supervise the safety work of each scenic spot.

We have re-optimized and compiled the instructive management documents and technical documents such as the amusement rides safety management system, job responsibilities, and operating procedures; at the same time, we have strengthened the level-by-level management system: safety responsibilities Implemented to each department, each team, and each post, so that whoever is in charge is responsible, and whoever operates is responsible.

We have formulated preventive downtime maintenance plans according to our own business characteristics. Preventive downtime (if necessary) is carried out during the month (before Oktoberfest), September (before November Golden Week) and after October Golden Week (November, December).

In addition to the daily maintenance work, we must also do a good job in the supervision and supervision of the safe operation of the amusement rides. Each amusement rides has a matching safety management manual, so that the maintenance and repair of the amusement rides can always be kept under control. state.

We have formulated an emergency plan for each amusement rides, and require each rides to conduct emergency rescue drills every month, and regularly organize emergency management training for relevant operators, so as to plan ahead and prevent problems before they occur. At the same time, according to the new situation and new problems found in the process of rides operation and inspection, the original plan will be continuously improved and perfected.
