SOUTHERN CALIFORNIA -- The state Division of Occupational Safety and Health issued citations to Disneyland Resort on Friday for seven worker-safety violations, and two major attractions remained closed on Sunday, according to CBSLA.com.
Space Mountain and Soarin’ Over California were closed voluntarily by park officials after the citations were issued. The Matterhorn was also closed but has re-opened, CBSLA.com reported.
A contractor working on Space Mountain was seriously injured late last year while working on the building’s exterior. While investigating that accident, Cal/OSHA found that Disneyland failed to correct fall hazards on Space Mountain that were detailed in a report issued in 2006.
“Furthermore, Disneyland Resort failed to have approved anchorages or approved tie-backs for contract employees to attach to when performing scheduled exterior building maintenance,” Cal/OSHA officials wrote on the agency’s website.
Cal/OSHA is proposing that Disneyland Resorts be penalized $234,850 for the violations.
