Boyne Resorts To Start Requiring Helmets For Employees Working On Hills
Multiple ski resorts throughout the country will start requiring workers to wear safety helmets while out on the hills, including some in Northern Michigan.
Boyne Resorts owns nine ski resorts across the United States and Canada.
They are putting the new policy in place after a man, who was not wearing a helmet, died while working on a steep trail at one of their resorts in Maine.
The Occupational Safety and Health Administration fined the resort more than $11,000.
The new rules will apply to multiple resorts, including Boyne Mountain and Boyne Highlands Resort.
The National Ski Areas Association says the industry is also moving to such policies.
