Event space risks you need to think about
When looking to hire out a space for an event there are a number of things you need to think about in terms of the health and safety of those who are going to attend. Any building should have undertaken a Gloucester fire risk assessment, and if you need help with completing one you should take a look at http://keloscape.co.uk/fire-risk-assessment/ who can help you. Here are some of the risks that you need to think about.
Fire Safety – is your event going to use electrical equipment that needs to be PAT tested before use? How will you evacuate the space in the event of a fire or other evacuation need? What is the capacity for the building in terms of numbers?
Access – can people safely access the building and move their way safely around the event? Will people be expected to remain in their seat for the length of the event? What disable access is available?
First Aid – Do you have a first aid specialist available? Is there any risk to injury from the event that you are holding? Do you need to warn people of any specific risks on the day such as strobe lighting.
These are just three of the areas that you need to consider. You can find more here.
