Safety Program

Family Fun at SkerbeckSkerbeck Entertainment Group takes its safety program and responsibilities as a carnival midway provider seriously. 

Policies, guidelines, and procedures have been designed to assure business is conducted in a manner that provides a safe environment for customers and workers. The safety program consists of four key elements – Equipment Inspections, Equipment Maintenance, Employee Training, and Customer Education.

Equipment Inspections

Ride inspections occur every day prior to opening by two different in-house State licensed inspectors. In addition, third-party consultants inspect and perform non-destructive testing of equipment on an annual basis. We are also inspected and licensed by State officials allowing the company to operate in Michigan and Indiana. Each State has mandated safety inspection codes per state legislation. Please check our safety record – we are proud of it!

Equipment Maintenance

We believe that a robust preventative maintenance schedule for rides is an important component of safe equipment operation. Manufacturers' scheduled maintenance procedures are performed.

Customer Education Height SignageHeight Sign

We utilize professional signs at each ticket box as well as at each ride to communicate height and weight requirements. It is important for customers to understand that the ride manufacturers and insurance companies establish the height and weight requirements in order to ensure the safety of midway customers, children in particular.

Employee Training

Safety coordinators receive technical qualifications through training sponsored by the National Association of Amusement Ride Safety Officials (NAARSO) and Amusement Industry Manufacturers and Suppliers International (AIMS). The entire workforce attends frequent safety meetings which are used to provide on-going training and to give the organization a forum for open discussion of employee observations and/or concerns. Example topics at safety meetings include: fire safety, staying alert (avoiding fatigue), the proper use of Personal Protective Equipment (PPE), and behavior based safety tips such as staying out of the “line of fire” and keeping your “eyes on path”.
