Our guidelines for a safe working environment for event staff

The Association of Event Organisers (AEO) has set out guidance to support and assess the safe working environment at live events post COVID-19 to assist with the recovery of the events industry.

There is a number of items that will need to be considered post COVID-19 at live events so we have put together a short overview of the AEO guidelines for us all:  

  1. Approved by the UK government

The guidance will help to achieve common standards of health, safety and operational planning, management and on-site conduct for the events industry.

  1. The All Secure Standard – Risk Assessment Framework

The health and safety of industry professionals, customers and delegates must remain top priority to any event organiser. The ‘All Secure Standard’ has been set up to provide a best-practice guide to industry professionals.

  1. Key Measures

The AEO UK operations group has put together a list of key measures to consider when planning events that can be used in-conjunction with risk assessments. The measures are also scalable depending on the size of your event.

  1. Risk Assessment

An event risk assessment has been developed to identify the contact points where, when and how transmission at the event is most likely to occur and assigns the controls best able to reduce the risk of this transmission. The AEO. Have provided a basic risk assessment and a more comprehensive risk assessment.

We will be working towards adapting these guidelines to our client’s events and completing all risk assessments prior to any events taking place. Our guidance, along with the AEO guidelines, will be continually reviewed to ensure best practice is being adhered to at all times.

We are looking forward to getting back to providing knowledgeable, highly-skilled event staff to the events industry across the UK very soon. In the meantime, if you have any event related questions, please contact us.
