Managing an event?

As stated by the HSE, as event organiser you are responsible for ensuring that overall safety at the event is maintained so that as far as reasonably practicable, people setting up, breaking down and attending the event are not exposed to risks to their health and safety.

These duties will include:

  • having health and safety arrangements in place to control risks

  • ensuring co-operation and proper co-ordination of work activities

  • providing your employees and others with relevant information on any risks to their health and safety

  • ensuring the competence of staff to undertake their role safely

  • monitoring health and safety compliance

  • reviewing your health and safety arrangements

What do you need to do?

Once physical activity starts at the event site, attention should move away from planning and paperwork to the effective management and monitoring of site operations as per the following topics:

  • Management

  • Co-ordination

  • Information

  • Competence

  • Monitoring & Review
