Water parks investigated by Workplace Health and Safety

TWO Sunshine Coast water parks have been investigated by authorities as a result of complaints received by the Office of Industrial Relations.

Workplace Health and Safety Queensland officers visited the water parks in Bli Bli and Coolum - once as the result of a child suffering a laceration that required medical treatment and the second over a complaint regarding an inflatable device.

Three separate site visits were also conducted as part of a regional pro-active campaign to ensure compliance by the park operators, according to a Workplace Health and Safety Queensland representative.

"In all cases, the attending inspector was satisfied that workplace risks were being sufficiently managed and no further action was taken," they said.

"Operators of water parks have obligations under the Work Health and Safety Act 2011 to ensure the health and safety of everyone at the park."

The visits took place between July 1, 2010 and November 8 this year.
