2020 Third Quarter Injury Report Released for Central Florida Theme Parks – Guest Has Stroke on Mission: SPACE, More Issues at Volcano Bay
The 2020 third-quarter injury report for Central Florida theme parks, including Walt Disney World Resort and Universal Orlando Resort, has been released thanks to the MOU Exempt Facilities Report. Typically, amusement parks and fairs are subject to inspection from the State of Florida. However, “Permanent facilities that employ at least 1,000 full-time employees and that maintain full-time, in-house safety inspectors” are exempt from state inspection.
To remain exempt, the operators must report serious injuries to Florida’s Department of Agriculture and Consumer Services every quarter for the MOU Exempt Facilities Report. We reported on 2020’s first-quarter injury report and Walt Disney World was closed for the second quarter. Thankfully, there have not been many injuries since the parks reopened.
