If you are visiting a music venue, perhaps for a gig or performance of some kind, you will only be expecting the best from the experience. This could be a great memory for you, especially if you know you will be seeing someone who you have followed for a long time. You may have bought their music and seen them live before and know what a great experience it is.
So imagine then how devastating it would be for you to suffer music venue injuries while you were there. This could happen in all kinds of ways. Maybe the organisers let too many people into the area and you end up being crushed and unable to get out.
Perhaps the stairs are not clearly marked and you take a tumble down them. Perhaps the seating is unstable and collapses under the weight of the fans, with you among the injured.
It should be noted that things like this don’t often happen. Workers who are experienced in these areas will generally deal with the requirements each music venue has whenever a gig is laid on.
The employer will know the health and safety elements they have to be aware of and how to keep their staff safe whenever they have a venue to get ready. They will perform risk assessments, give training and ensure everyone is prepared for the jobs they have to do.
This holds true before, during and after a music gig. Music venue injuries are generally quite rare because of the hard work that goes on behind the scenes. This means most people will attend these venues and never have to worry about being put at risk of suffering music venue injuries.
Supposing something does go wrong?
You can never be 100% certain nothing will go wrong at any event. However many precautions you take to be safe at all times, you might find you are the victim of an accident that was someone else’s fault.
For instance you could end up being the victim of a trip, slip or fall as a result of a hazard someone else left in place.
