Events – Health and Safety

Challenges

Event management offers a variety of risk factors that lay in wait for the unwary organiser.
There are many stakeholders coming together for varied tasks, From the “Build” stage to the “pack out” stage and the time in between where members of the public are throughout the area.

Without a robust health and safety culture in place the risk is just too big to ignore.
By the time the patrons arrive all systems must be in place and procedures in place for the possible situations that may arise, from a twisted ankle from a customer fall through to a full on emergency situation.

The public coming to events deserve the protection of a well managed health and safety system in place
