How safety software is enhancing event management processes
This blog looks at how event safety can be transformed using digital tools and read how our client Encore has leveraged software for their health and safety management.
Most people never stop to think about the work behind the scenes that makes the events they experience successful. But Encore knows that the small details matter - and that includes health and safety.
Event management companies always prioritise health and safety to ensure the wellbeing of their staff, participants, event staff and attendees. The specific requirements may vary depending on the type and scale of the event. There are some key considerations and regulations that event management companies need to get right and digital safety software supports this.
Your health and safety policy shows your commitment to site safety, outlining the procedures you follow to minimise risks. The important part is the communication of this to your own staff and the contractors who will be on site during the event build. It’s vital both are trained in your policies and aware of the risks they will face for every event build. Having everything in one place and readily available for all is achievable with all in one software.
Safety critical processes
Risk Assessments must be conducted for each event to identify the potential hazards and to assess the level of risk faced by the event organiser at the venue. The result of using digital health and safety software makes this process far easier.
Permit to works are essential for any contractors who are working during your event build up. Especially if any subcontractors are working at heights or with high risk items like an electrical installation. You’re likely to need these permits yourself as a venue classifies event management companies as contractors. The result of using health and safety software is a straightforward process for issuing, managing and closing out permits for subcontractors.
