Event Planning: Staff Safety

Particular roles of staff or stewards at your event might be associated with more risk and therefore need to be considered in the event planning stages and included in your risk assessment.

For example:

  • Think about the routines and security arrangements for staff that are handling cash, many of who may be unfamiliar with this role.
  • If the event is to finish late, make sure that all staff can get home safely and that they do not have to wait alone at bus stops, stations and/or travel alone. Consider arranging taxis for staff where public transport will be a problem.
