The weather is finally starting to improve and summer is officially here. After the disappointments of last year, people will be looking for ways to make the most of every single drop of sunshine so any outdoor events will need to be ready for great attendance figures.
As part of your preparations you will need to consider health & safety and emergency planning to ensure that you comply with HSE legislation, so we’ve put together a quick guide to help guide your research into this essential area.
What You Need To Do
• Carry out a risk assessment to evaluate your event; consider the venue, the numbers of people attending and the type of activities that will be taking place.
• Draw up a procedure for an emergency such as a fire or accident on site.
• Contact local emergency services to ensure that they are aware of your event and can work with you in the event of a larger, regional incident.
• Ensure that all staff and volunteers are familiar with emergency procedures.
• Arrange for a first aider to be present on site.
