Do you ask yourself "Is my event safe? Am I doing everything I can to keep everyone on site safe? Does my event meet legal requirements?".
Many countries do not have event specific regulations which makes it hard to "guess" what clients and authorities even consider a "safe event". This course takes away that guesswork and gives you proven, internationally accepted and easy-tofollow guidelines for a safe and secure event.
Event safety and security work together to help your attendees enjoy a great event. The event safety part is all about how you design and build an event, and you'll also find out how to select a competent supplier. We look closely at the three main hazards: fire, electrical, and structural hazards - and how to avoid them. By using real world examples, you'll know how to instantly identify hazards that could lead to harm.
Once the event is set up, security becomes important. Here, it's all about your attendees. You'll learn how safety experts calculate crowd capacity, estimate crowd sizes and monitor crowd behaviour. We'll also look at designing queuing systems and optimising crowd flow, to keep your vendors (including food vendors) and attendees happy. Practical exercises in this course will show you what it looks and feels like before a crowd becomes uncontrollable. And you'll know how to control the situation.
In addition, we'll go deep into handling different emergency scenarios - for instance how to deal with an approaching storm or a terror attack. You'll be able to supply authorities with the necessary information they need to approve your event.Updated on 27 January, 2021
