Description provided by NAFLIC in Bulletin #424: The Health and Safety Executive (HSE) has published guidance to help manage risks to people, including young children, from juvenile fairground rides. It outlines what controllers should consider when undertaking risk assessments and deciding what they need to do to guard their juvenile fairground rides. It points out that it is essential controllers do a full risk assessment that takes into account all of the issues specific to that ride (e.g. size, speed, dangerous parts and trained operator numbers) and its operating conditions (e.g. space, layout, ground conditions and public numbers) and put in place control measures including fencing where this is necessary. The full guidance is available to download free of charge from the ADIPS website at the following link: http://www.adips.co.uk/publications/
