Event planning

A safe, successful event requires a great deal of planning

Your district or borough council is responsible for helping you plan a major event. You can also get guidance from the Health and Safety Executive on planning a safe event

Emergency planning is one of the many responsibilities of an event organiser. Consider what serious risks could affect your event. Examples are:

  • extreme weather
  • mass staff shortage due to illness
  • terrorism
  • fire

Make a plan for how you would keep your guests safe in these situations.
