    All amusement rides must be thoroughly inspected annually by the governing body of each province, that they are to be operated in. Campbell's play events in 3 provinces and must undergo rigorous inspections in each province. Before an event opens, there is a local Electrical Standard Association (ESA) inspection performed to check the condition of the "temporary panels, junction boxes, cables, and verification of maintenance highlighted from previous events in other locations." Furthermore, TSSA performs an operational inspection during the event to verify operators are following procedures indicated in the approved operation manual for each ride, i.e. load/unload procedures, proper securing of participant safety devices, operator safety precautions, etc.
