A workshop on developing Health and Safety Plans for arts events filled with practical exercises and really good advice led by Cathy Knowsley.
“as event professionals we create very unique experiences each time we set up a new event or event site. And with this we create very unique sets of risks and potential hazards.” Cathy Knowlsey
This workshop is designed to help us create and deliver our unique experiences while keeping everyone safe. It will cover the basic principles of developing a health and safety plan, including identifying hazards and management strategies for the events you are planning be they small or large. It will also talk about how to put your plan in action on the day. And finally, it will help us be better informed on our H&S obligations.
The workshop will be practical, drawing on the events you are running and the experiences you have had so bring your knowledge and expertise to share with the group.
There are only 12 places.
