A Gold Star in Safety
Safety is the number one priority of the global attractions industry, and it’s important that amusement facilities not only meet, but exceed safety standards. The Oklahoma Department of Labor has implemented an Amusement Ride Gold Star Safety Award Program, recognizing amusement facilities with great safety records.
Most recently, America’s Incredible Pizza Company in Tulsa, Oklahoma, received the Amusement Ride Gold Star Award from the Oklahoma Department of Labor. This facility underwent review for compliance with insurance requirements, ride safety history, incident rate and compliance safety.
In North Carolina, the state’s Department of Labor also has a Safety Amusement Star Program — a voluntary program that facilities have to sign-up for to be considered. If you’re a facility in North Carolina, we encourage you to consider applying for this recognition highlighting your safety record.
IAAPA applauds the states of Oklahoma and North Carolina for their support of proactive safety programs such as the Gold Star Award and the Safety Amusement Star Program. These programs truly promote safety across the attractions industry, and honor industry leaders who are going above and beyond. IAAPA also sends a special congratulations to America’s Incredible Pizza Company in Tulsa for earning this prestigious recognition and making safety a top priority in their everyday operations.
