Public Safety at Festivals and Mass Gatherings

Festivals and mass gatherings can vary in size from one venue to another, which is why the risks involved can also vary dramatically. Pre-planning for an event will significantly influence the way in which a major incident should be handled.

We have created this course to make sure you don’t miss anything vital from your contingency plan. The course explains how to produce a qualitative risk assessment of a site enabling you to evaluate safety features of an event proposal.
