Scottish Trampoline Park Closes Amid Health And Safety Concerns

An Edinburgh based trampoline park has shut amid concerns over its license, with over 100 people receiving injuries in the first three weeks of it opening its doors.

The park may be subject to legal action after it was revealed by The Edinburgh Evening News that the waiver signed by customers to prevent personal injury claims may be “unenforceable” under Scots law.

Injuries 

The park saw more than 100 incidents in three weeks, with seven people seriously injured. Injuries varied from broken limbs to head knocks, with one visitor suffering a broken neck. 

Despite the high levels of injuries, the chief executive of the Ryze park, Case Lawrence said that the level of accidents seen at the park were below the industry norms, and that the number of accidents were purely down to the high level of jumpers and interest in the park when it was open. 

Lawrence also believed that the injuries were a result of carrying out such activities but not due to the lack of health and safety procedures in place.

The park, which has been closed over licensing agreements, had been investigated by the Midlothian Council Health and Safety Officers after a high level of injuries. 

Waiver

The park made customers sign a waiver stating that they would not take legal action for their injuries, however, expect solicitors have stated that the waiver may “unenforceable” under Scots law. 

The attempt to remove liability from activities like trampolining is “void” and “completely meaningless” according to expert solicitors, with organisers unable to waiver their “duty of care if they were found to be “negligent”. 

Although the waiver may not be compatible with Scots Law, the trampoline park claimed they were confident of their legal stance.
