Creating Safe Events – What Does Best Practice Look Like?

The Creating Safe Events – What Does Best Practice Look Like? will look at what best practice looks like, and you can see how your current event plans and risk assessments measure up. Are you creating a safe and well-organised event? Are you really prepared for an unexpected emergency situation? And are you guilty of creating an event risk assessment “because you have to for the event permit” but then you file it away and never look at it again?

You’ll learn:

  • What the best practice setup looks like for create safe events
  • Ways to use your risk assessment more effectively in your event planning
  • How to best plan for the unexpected and unplanned on event day
  • How to fast-track the risk planning process so it gets easier each time
