GENERAL SAFETY TIPS
• READ posted rules.
• OBSERVE age, height and weight restrictions.
• FOLLOW instructions of ride operator.
• KEEP hands, arms and legs inside ride at all times.
• USE safety equipment such as a seat belt, shoulder harness, lap bar or chain when provided.

SAFETY TIPS FOR PARENTS
To ensure the safety of a child, particularly a small child, several steps should be taken. Before placing the child on an amusement ride, a parent relying on his or her knowledge of their child’s capabilities should assume an active role in determining whether or not a particular ride is appropriate for the child.
Common Sense Steps May Make the Difference
• WATCH the ride in operation and make sure your child can ride it safely.
• OBSERVE the operator.
• EXPLAIN to the child about appropriate behavior: keeping hands and feet inside, sitting down, holding on, and obeying the ride operator’s instructions.
• DO NOT force your child to ride if he or she is frightened. A scared child on the ground may well panic in the air.
CARNIVAL AND FAIRS GENERAL SAFETY
The following tips will help keep your family’s trip to the park, fair, or carnival an enjoyable experience.
• Designate an easily recognizable place to meet your child in the case of separation in a crowd.
• Because it is difficult to control children in such an exciting environment, try to have an adult supervise every two children.
• Wear sensible clothes and shoes.
• Carnivals and fairs are usually on rough ground and because it is a temporary situation cables and hoses are laid on top of the ground and so the whole area is a small obstacle course.
