New Standards Set In Ohio For Amusement Park Ride Safety
Thursday, November 7, 2019

Ohio Republican Governor, Mike DeWine signed a measure which aims to strengthen Ohio’s amusement ride safety program.

The bill seeks to increase safety inspection standards, define qualifications for ride inspectors and outline ride owner responsibilities, among other items.

It also will provide for a professional engineer on the state panel that makes recommendations to Ohio’s agriculture director about safety matters, involving amusement rides.

The legislation dubbed “Tyler’s Law” was named for Tyler Jarrell, the 18-year-old Marine recruit who was killed when the “Fireball” ride malfunctioned and broke apart on opening day of the 2017 Ohio State Fair.
