Assessment & Contingency
Risk Assessments at Events
Event Medic Services Ltd take risk assessments seriously and will always work alongside the contracted event to ensure these are robust and in place. It is the responsibility of the event organiser to ensure that a valid risk assessment has been carried out prior to the event taking place, following all the current guidelines to ensure these are up to date and fit for purpose.
These documents should be made readily available to Event Medic Services Ltd prior to the event or immediately upon arrival at the event.
The nominated person from Event Medic Services Ltd will also carry out a dynamic risk assessment when they first arrive at the event and also whilst the event is in progress. Should the nominated person find or observe any areas of risk that are of concern, they will liaise with the event coordinator to ensure these are highlighted and an agreed action is put into place.
NB: Due to the nature of many events, this assessment will need to be ongoing as the event progresses and we will endeavour to minimise any delays should changes be required.
