California Regulators Seek Fine After Disneyland Accident

April 18, 2013

State regulators want to fine Disney nearly $235,000 for violating safety regulations after a worker was injured at the Space Mountain ride.

The Orange County Register says fines are being proposed by the state Division of Occupational Safety and Health. The penalties stem from a November accident when a contract worker slipped and suffered broken bones while cleaning the exterior of Space Mountain at Disneyland.

The agency says Disneyland Resort willfully violated safety regulations. Disney says it hasn’t decided whether to appeal the penalties.

Three rides were closed over the weekend as the company reviewed its safety protocols. Two of them – Space Mountain and Soarin’ Over California in Disney California Adventure _ remain closed.
