It is interesting that with all of the complaints leveled against OSHA/DOSH . . . DLR seems to anecdotally, have a much worse history of accidents than WDW given WDW has more hotels and theme parks.
Off the top of my head: People Mover deaths decades ago, the Columbia death, the Big Thunder Mountain death, the accidents on Space Mountain.
I wonder if part of the reason why Alice's exterior is still "temporary" scaffolding years later is sort of a permanent display meant to serve as a visual reminder of OSHA's supposedly onerous policies. Also, you have Disney blaming the lack of a People Mover replacement on OSHA rules. Seems like something could be built which would satisfy OSHA.

and this excerpt:
- On April 22, 2003, a 36-year old stage technician fell 60 feet from a catwalk in the Hyperion Theater, prompting an investigation by the California Occupational Safety and Health Administration (Cal/OSHA). The victim did not regain consciousness following the incident and died on May 18, 2003. In October 2003, Cal/OSHA fined the Disneyland Resort $18,350 for safety violations related to the technician's death.
No wonder they are concerned about issues with castmembers falling . . .
