Ensuring Your Event is Safe
When managing an event, you have a duty of care to ensure that all attendees are safe. Please visit here for useful links containing vital information to consider throughout the process of organising and running an event.
Covid 19 Safety Update: As we all plan for a slow and safe return to normality, we are keen to support individuals or organisations planning on staging a safe event in Liverpool.
But we need your help to do that.
Before submitting an event, all safety and security risks need to be considered – and this includes Covid-safe measures. What are you going to do as the event organiser to help prevent the transmission of the virus and keep your staff and attendees safe?
As advised by health and industry experts, new policies and procedures need to be adopted by you to minimise physical contact and maximise the health and well-being of everyone involved.
We are urging organisers to let us know your plans as early as possible..
This means they can then be reviewed by the relevant local authority teams, along with the emergency services, and advice can be given accordingly.
If you do not give adequate notice, the Safety Advisory Groups may not be in a position to review the plans thoroughly, and your event will not officially be regarded as a ‘safe event’.
