NSW warns of zero tolerance policy for unsafe rides

NSW Fair Trading Minister Eleni Petinos has announced that she will have a zero tolerance policy with unsafe rides following an incident in which a four-year-old boy was left unrestrained on a ride at the Sydney Royal Easter show on Sunday afternoon.

“I can confirm that I have instructed SafeWork NSW to explore shutting the Free Fall ride for the remainder of the 2022 Sydney Royal Easter Show if patron’s safety cannot be guaranteed,” Ms Petinos said.

“The ride has been closed pending investigation.”

“Safety is my number one priority and any operator who fails to provide the highest level of safety standards should face severe consequences and that is why I’ve instructed SafeWork NSW to explore all available avenues.”

SafeWork NSW is investigating the incident.
