OSHA has cited Lake Compounce Family Theme Park in Bristol, Conn., for 18 serious violations of workplace safety standards. According to OSHA's news release, the company exposed employees spraying coatings on park equipment and working with caustic chemicals in the park's paint room to chemical, burn, and respiratory hazards.

Some of the hazards included failing to: train employees about hazardous chemicals, complete a hazard assessment for protective equipment needed by workers, and provide required eye- and hand-washing facilities for employees working with chemicals.
