  • OSHA records show high rate of injury for costumed Disney characters - 3/4/07

    From the Orlando Sentinel

    Performers at Walt Disney World's four Orlando theme parks reported enough injuries in 2005 to affect more than a third of the local 1,900-person work force that portrays 270 different characters, an Orlando Sentinel analysis of injury reports found.

    Costumes weighing as much as 60 pounds were blamed as the cause of 282 out of 773 injuries, mostly to the neck, shoulder or back, according to reports kept during 2005 by Disney for the Occupational Health and Safety Administration and obtained by the Orlando Sentinel.

    Incidents ranging from a death in 2004 to minor ailments such as skin rashes afflict the performers, who typically work 30-minute sets posing for photographs, signing autographs, marching in parades and interacting with Disney guests, records show.
