Health and Safety requirements for a public event

The purpose of this document is to provide practical guidance on how to safely manage events in order for you to meet your obligations under the new Health and Safety at Work Act 2015 (HSWA) and manage risk of harm to people or damage to property. Risks of injury to workers, members of the public and other people attending events should be eliminated or, if this is not possible, reduced so far as is reasonably practicable.
