Event health and safety management
Today, events play an ever-increasing and important part of our everyday lives. As a nation, we love our events! They can encompass anything from festivals and parades to food and craft fairs to parties and celebrations to exhibitions and experiential events – just about anything can be turned into an event. Organising an event is however, no easy task, with the pressure to deliver – ever present.
The aim of these event health and safety courses ( covering public, business, sports, charity and experiential events ) is to give delegates the skills and confidence to design, plan and deliver exciting but ‘safe’ public and business events. The courses will help you understand all the key elements of event health and safety management: event management plans and risk assessments.
Each course will be tailored to suit the types of events you run.

“Thank you so much for running the event health and safety course Chris . Everyone said it was incredibly useful and interesting. I think it’s opened their eyes to a lot of things so well done on putting together something so relevant”. Rapha Ltd.
“On behalf of me and my team at CADW I just wanted to say that today’s event health and safety training was superb and really useful for planning future events”. CADW
“It was a really good day – practical, thoughtful, detailed when it needed to be, appropriate to our event, interesting and more than worth the money. I would highly recommend it to anyone who is planning an event or, like me, has been involved in an event which has evolved over the years and needs to make sure what is in the heads of the organisers needs to be documented”.
