Latest Safety Article:
Family Entertainment Center General Safety - June 1st, 2024
In February 2008 a suburban Chicago man died in a go-kart crash in Indianapolis during an outing with co-workers.  He suffered a spinal fracture after he lost control of his go-kart while making a 180 degree turn.  He hit a wall and became airborne.  As he descended, his neck struck a guard rail.  He was wearing a helmet and was securely fastened in with seat restraints at the time of the crash.  According to the Indianapolis police his death was an accident.  
 
In December 2007, a 3 year old child died during an outing to an FEC in Washington State.  It’s a dangerous world and anyone who thinks just because they own and operate an FEC with games, inflatables, miniature golf, go-karts, etc. that they have less risk than the local theme park or water park are sadly mistaken.  A person killed riding a go-kart is just as dead as a person killed on roller coaster and it’s just as big a tragedy and loss to the families.  
 
Review all of your safety policies and procedures and make sure they competently and completely cover your facilities operation.  
 
Make sure all employees are competently trained, that the employees are trained from your FEC’s approved written training guidelines and that the training is documented.  
 
Regardless of the size of your operation, make sure that you have a crisis management plan in place and all employees are trained properly in the event of an emergency.  
 
Have a first aid kit available and check it monthly to make sure it’s always stocked, make sure your employees are trained in CPR and have an AED (Automatic External Defibrillator) available.  
 
Review your FEC’s maintenance policies and procedures.  Regardless of your FEC’s size your facility and attractions within the facility should be inspected DAILY.  There are absolutely NO exceptions in this category.  No shortcuts should be taken.  Review the competence of your maintenance staff and if they are lacking in skills and experience, get rid of them and get someone who is qualified.  And YES you may have to pay a little more money for competent maintenance personnel, but then again do want to diminish the safety of your operation for few dollars?   
 
Finally make sure your FEC is clean.  Nothing says this place has questionable safety practices than a dirty family fun environment.
