Japanese Park Maintenance Worker Hit By Coaster, Dies
Why was he working on a ride while it was operating and in motion?
The amusement park rises bold and stark
Kids are huddled on the beach in a mist...
Now if the ride operators knew that he was doing maintenance work & they dispatched the train anyways then the ride operators are at fault.But then i have to agree that he is a little bit at fault too for working on the coaster without making sure that the ride was shut down first.But the real question is weather the ride operators knew that he was working on the coaster or not.If the ride operators knew that he was there doing maintenance work then they can face murder charges for dispatching the train if they knew that he was there.
Not used here!
Not justifying what happened, but as Kevin mentioned they don't have "Lock Out Tag Out" (LOTO) in Japan.
Maybe this is a common practice in Japan?
We shouldn't be so quick to judge.
