Stagesafe, A Health and Safety Consultancy
for the Live Music and Event Production Industries
Health and safety can sometimes seem like a load of time-consuming red tape – when you’re busy planning an event or tour, it’s easy to lose sight of the importance of proper health and safety planning and management. Sitting down and grappling with Health & Safety legislation isn’t one of your top priorities. It’s fair to say that it’s not one of the more exciting parts of running an event, festival, tour or your own business, and it doesn’t bring in any money.
However, with the average fine for Health & Safety prosecutions being over £30,000, it can be very costly if you don’t stay on the right side of the law. It's been said many times before but, if you think health and safety is expensive, try having an accident!
"We are world experts in tombstone legislation in the UK and have spectacular expertise in hindsight. It's just a shame that those with foresight are deemed to be killjoys and naysayers". Eric Stuart.
From a risk-management perspective, it’s important not to lose sight of health and safety – what’s the point in carefully planning fun and engaging events if someone is going to become injured or, in a worst-case scenario, killed? Financial ruin and potentially criminal responsibility are neither fun nor engaging!
