Home Office publishes guidance on safety at public events

Howard Lake | 4 September 2006 | News

The Home Office has published new ./guidance for organisers of carnivals, charity and small-scale sporting events to help make them as safe as possible for the public and participants.

The Good Practice Safety Guide is aimed at both professional and amateur organisers of smaller scale events, and features information relevant to charity event organisers, whether paid charity staff or volunteers.

It covers how to set up events, carry out a risk assessment, and ensure that fire and safety requirements are met. It also advises on local authority requirements, the use of stewards and when to involve the police.

The Guide is designed to complement the existing, more detailed Event Safety Code issued by the Health and Safety Executive.

Home Office Minister Tony McNulty said: “While there has been a range of information available for larger scale events, organisers of smaller events have often found it hard to access information relevant to them.

“In particular, those organising events on the highways – such as road running and cycle racing – will find this guide useful.”
