The success of an event is often defined in terms of the spectacle, economic benefit and crowd numbers. Success, however, should also be measured by each event’s level of safety.
When attending major events the community has an expectation that they do so without risk of injury and that the event host has systems to ensure their safety.
Each event is unique and poses its own specific safety risks. Major events, however, have one thing in common - they attract large crowds.
Additionally, they commonly have:
- a high profile that attracts media attention;
- a number of very distinct planning, construction and operational phases before, during and after the event is held;
- a significant and diverse range of stakeholders;
- large numbers of volunteer and inexperienced staff;
- potentially of national or international focus;
- a time-critical element;
- a broad economic impact on the local, regional, state or national economy; and
- the requirement for careful consideration and management of safety risks
Event Safety is Mandated by WHS Legislation
Event organisers have a duty of care under WHS Legislation to provide a safe operational environment. Under this legislation, event organisers must ensure so far as reasonably practicable that: people are not exposed to risks arising from the operation; and any place where employees and self-employed persons work is safe.
Be-Sure Fire Event Safety can manage WHS activities required to ensure that the event is managed in compliance with Legislation and the WHS objectives of the event.
