How does the process work?
The main law governing health and safety at work in the UK is the Health and Safety at Work etc Act 1974 (HASWA). This places general duties on employers, the self-employed and people in control of premises to ensure, so far as is reasonably practicable, the health and safety of their employees and anyone else that may be harmed by work activities or the workplace, e.g. the audience. The most significant difference between events organisation and other work activities is the large numbers of people who, though not in employ, are still owed duties.
Good practice indicates that organisers need to:
- Ensuring that there is an appropriate level of medical provision at an event
- Undertake a medical resource assessment
- A medical staffing plan should be made prior to the event to ensure that staff are deployed appropriately
- Medical provision should be provided for the full duration of the event, including build up and break down
Once we have received your enquiry, we will arrange a meeting to discuss your requirements, at which point we will produce a proposal which is aligned with best practice and current Health and Safety recommendations.
