This event is co-organised with GMGNetwork a Live Event Consultancy, experts on Health & Safety (H&S;).
The role of H&S; within the event environment isn’t a difficult one to understand – across most aspects #eventprofs do things that may be more hazardous than in a more traditional work environment so we need to be aware of and manage those hazards.
The biggest players (think festivals, exhibitions, international venues) on the whole have enough resources to take a proactive approach to H&S.; Further down the line this doesn’t always seem to be the case so where is it that responsibilities actually sit? And what do you actually need to know as an event organiser, production company, venue or freelance technician?
Updated legislation is due to be introduced to the live event sector in April 2015. Are you prepared? Do you know where your responsibility lies?
To help remove some misconceptions and help you develop an informed approach to your own H&S; responsibilities as well as of those who work around you we invite a panel of industry Health & Safety experts to share their experience and knowledge.
