Relevant Risk provides an in-house consultation process.
Your event personnel need to know the ins and outs of legislation because it has to be applied to their every day jobs. They have to understand what every one of your in-house policies mean because they need to apply them. They need to know what has been agreed through your procurement department with your suppliers.
They should be applying your own policies and legislation requirements to every event they plan.
Five questions you can ask your team.
Q1. Do you know who is responsible for health & safety at each of the events you plan?
Q2. Do you know what our company policy on working time regulations is?
Q3. Do you check whether PPL or PRS licence fees have been paid?
Q4. Do you agree how insurance cover is applied with suppliers at each event?
Q5. Do you have all the legislation knowledge required in order to undertake your event planning role?
If they have any doubts, you are open to risk.

If you handle hundreds of events every year and employ numerous agencies, either under contract or ad-hoc, it may be time to undertake a risk review with your suppliers.
Responsibility and liability is often shared and certainly cannot be transferred - even by contract - particularly if the matter falls under criminal law.
Your suppliers. Your duty of care.
Every business uses it's own particular documents and process when planning events. From brief, contact reports, operations manuals and evaluation documents to name a few.
We can review your event documents and process, and provide recommendations on what should be included so that your business is protected in the event of an incident or investigation.
In business, you are guilty and have to prove your innocence. And your paper trail may be your only proof!
