The event safety guide replaces The guide to health, safety and welfare at pop concerts and other similar events. Changes in health and safety law and the continuing development of ‘best practice’ have led to this new guide.
The event safety guide aims to help everyone who organises music events so that events run safely. The guide will enable event organisers to understand the needs of others concerned with the event, such as local authorities and the emergency services, so that they can all work together to improve event safety.
There are 33 easy-to-read chapters covering different types of venue, site provisions and facilities needed, management issues and relevant legislation.
