Cedar Fair responds to OSHA Safety Citation . By Jared Shelly Philadelphia Business Journal January 29, 2015. . . The parent company for Dorney Park and Wildwater Kingdom has issued a response to claims that they exposed its workforce — many of whom are teenagers — to heat hazards this summer. In December, the U.S. Department of Labor's Occupational Safety and Health Administration cited Cedar Fair LP (the operators of the park) after investigating an incident in which a teen worker collapsed near a fryer and sustained burns."Dorney Park follows all recommended guidelines and procedures as set forth by OHSA," the company said in a statement. "All of our seasonal associates go through extensive training in orientation which includes the Heat Illness Prevention Program. We take great pride in creating a safe working environment by educating our valued employees on how to recognize the signs of any heat related illness and arm them with the knowledge of when to take frequent water breaks plus shaded breaks. Safety is at the heart of everything we do and we will continue to partner with the Allentown OSHA office to ensure the best day of summer for our guests and our employees."OSHA cited Cedar Fair for "failure to develop and implement procedures for protecting employees while they worked outdoors in direct sunlight and in small food stands where heat sources exist," said a statement from the Department of Labor.The company faces a $7,000 fine. It also faces an additional record-keeping violation that comes with a $2,000 penalty.

Why Should You Follow Tony Clark on Twitter? By - Jordan Smith - CP Rundown.com
Tony Clark is the Director of Communications at Cedar Point, and you should follow him on Twitter. Why, you ask? Because by doing so, you will get to enjoy many more benefits of the park that non-followers of Tony Clark do not get to participate in. The most popular, of course, are tweet-ups.Tweet-ups work like this: all throughout the operating season, sometimes at random and sometimes planned, Tony will tweet a time and location where followers must find him or another park employee in the park. Those who find him in the time given will receive a prize such as line skippies, commemorative coins, and even free food vouchers. There is one simple rule to keep in mind while playing this game…absolutely NO RUNNING IN THE PARK. This will disqualify you from the game.
Not only does Tony Clark use Twitter to organize tweet-ups, but from time to time he will tweet exclusive park updates both during the operating season and when the park is closed in the winter. During the operating season, you may exclusively find out from Tony the weather conditions that may affect which rides will be open or closed for the day. You may even be the first to find out about exclusive Cedar Point contests that you surely won’t want to miss out on. During the off-season, you will get to see pictures of the park during the winter and hear about the latest construction updates throughout the park.Enjoy reading the blogs on Cedar Point’s websites? Do you find it thrilling to watch new PointCasts on Cedar Point’s YouTube channel? Be the first to find out when new blogs and videos are released from Cedar Point just by following Tony Clark on Twitter. You may find out about these things in advance before they are posted on Cedar Point’s Facebook page, or even Cedar Point’s website and their YouTube Channel.
So, if you haven’t already done so, head on over to Twitter, and follow Tony Clark (@TonyClarkCP ) on Twitter today! If these reasons haven’t convinced you to follow Tony Clark on Twitter by now, then how about this? Tony Clark is an asset to the park because he loves interacting with fans and many of his tweets can put a smile on your faces. I know they do for me. If you ever have a quick question regarding the park, feel free to send Tony a tweet. Chances are, if it is a question he can answer for you, he will do so, or even direct you to the appropriate park personnel that may have the answer for you.
