Site plan/facility design review: We realize that the biggest single cost to a business is often labor. Our site plan review lends an operator’s eye to the design process that can help keep the long-term cost of ownership down. Sometimes this is as simple as opening a line of sight that a designer didn’t realize would add a lifetime of additional expense to the owners P&L. Sometimes it’s a minor adjustment in a children’s play structure that allows for multiple slides to be managed by a single lifeguard. It is rare that we can’t find a way to make it safer and less expensive to run when we are involved in the design phase. Let us be your advocate and enjoy a lifetime of operational efficiencies.

Development of ride safety signage: We can help you decipher manufacturer operation and maintenance manuals and boil them down to what is needed on a safety sign. We also have a strong background in multi-lingual and graphic signage. If you are trying to decide what really needs to be communicated to your guests to keep them safe and keep you covered, we can help.

Due diligence attraction testing: This process is a ride testing sequence that ensures the widest range of weights, body sizes and ride experience passengers ride the rides prior to opening to the public. The number of times a ride is ridden depends on the local and national requirements. We document, in writhing and with video, the riders themselves, their vital statistics and we track them through the process in order to ensure the proper mix. Any remarkable events are noted and form the basis of a discussion with the manufacturer.

Facility inspection: This process is the final step in the pre-opening safety sequence. It serves to ensure all steps have been taken to manage your aquatic risk prior to opening to the public.

Risk Assessments: Broadly speaking, a risk assessment is the combined effort of: identifying and analyzing potential future events that may negatively impact individuals, assets, and/or the environment (i.e. risk analysis); and making judgments “on the tolerability of the risk on the basis of a risk analysis” while considering influencing factors (i.e. risk evaluation). Put in simpler terms, a risk assessment determines possible mishaps, their likelihood and consequences, and the tolerances for such events. We can help you by spending time in your operation and presenting a new perspective on what you and your team see every day.
