Your responsibility for health and safety at your event
Even if you are a community organisation with no employees, you still have a responsibility under
the Health and Safety at Work Act 1974 to ensure that your event and any contractors are operating
legally and safely.
The sections below will help ensure you take all reasonable steps to ensure your event is safe and
meets health and safety laws and guidelines.
Risk assessments and management
Please provide a copy of your completed risk assessment.
Risk assessments cover all health, safety and planning aspects of your event. You should develop
your risk assessment early on, monitor it constantly and adjust it as necessary.
The first step is to develop a risk register, which identifies the risks for your event. Each risk listed in
the register will need to be included in the risk assessment. You must include the risk of fire.
Risk assessments – contractors
Your contractors could include a fun fair ride, face painter or walkabout performer. As the event
organiser you are responsible for anything you contract in.
Please list all contractors associated with your event. You will need copies of their risk assessments.
