Safety Center


 

Maintaining a safe operation is critical to any business. But safety goes beyond just risk management; children are involved, and that means safety should always be everyone's #1 priority.

 

It is the responsibility of every amusement device owner or operator, to be informed as to the safe operation of the amusements devices they operate. This can be achieved by following manufacturers instruction manuals, ongoing training of staff and employees for safe operation of the device they are installing and supervising, and checking manufacturers websites or notices regarding any safety bulletin affecting the industry or a product they manufacture.

 

This page is designed as an additional resource to provide tips and suggestions to improve the safe operation of your business. It is also designed to notify you of any potential change to the operation or design of an existing Cutting Edge™ brand product, as well as changes to industry regulations and other pertinent news. It is not an exhaustive list, it is merely designed to help you in the safe operation of your business.

 

Bookmark this page and monitor it for updates frequently, so that you can always be up to speed on all things related to safety.
