I would have thought work cover wouldn't help them in this situation, or are they trying to claim the operator of the slide didn't do enough to fence it off?

I don't think the injured persons are going to claim workers compensation - however under WH&S laws, the attraction is considered a workplace, and injuries were sustained, so workcover typically gets involved as the lead on the investigation. Pretty sure they're also somewhat involved with the green lantern incident as well?

Pretty well anywhere is considered a workplace these days if someone 'works there' so WH&S issues arise. they'll conclude the operator was not at fault - nobody expects people WORKING at the show are going to do crap like this, so the operator's duty of care to secure the ride at that time is probably met.
