HSG 175: Fairgrounds and amusement parks – Guidance on safe practice
The HSE publication HSG 175 was written in consultation with the fairground and amusement park industry and gives advice to duty holders on how reduce risks, work safely and to comply with the law.
Following the guidance in HSG 175 and the ADIPS system is not compulsory and duty holders are free to take other action but they need to be prepared to show what they did was equally effective.
The HSE accept that duty holders following HSG 175 and the ADIPS system will normally be doing enough to comply with the law. Health and safety inspectors seek to secure compliance with the law and may refer to this guidance as illustrating good practice.
