This guidance was published in 1999 and has not been revised – for the latest advice on health and safety at events visit HSE’s event safety web pages.Some activities mentioned in HSG195 fall outside HSE’s areas of responsibility, and so do not appear on the new web pages. These activities include the provision of toilets and medical care for the audience and child protection issues.
The Events Industry Forum (EIF) is writing a comprehensive guide to staging events, which will include guidance on these additional activities and sections on health and safety. HSG195 will remain available until the new industry guidance is published.
The guide brings together information needed by event organisers, their contractors and employees to help them satisfy the requirements of the Health and Safety at Work etc Act 1974 (HSW Act) and associated regulations. It will also enable organisers to understand the needs of others concerned with events, such as the local authority and emergency services, with whom they will need to co-operate. The guide provides basic standards and safety measures through which it is hoped to encourage a consistency of approach while leaving scope for flexibility, taking into account the nature and size of the event.
