If you have sustained an injury while managing an event or if you are an event manager looking for ways to make event management safer, you may need some event manager injury advice. Accident Advice Helpline would like to take this opportunity to advise you on tips for managing an event safely and your options if an injury should occur.
Most event organisers manage risk to some degree; however, most often this is not done in a systematic manner. Without an overriding commitment to safety from the senior management, event managers can find it difficult to implement safety at the grass-roots level. It may be very difficult for staff to develop a positive safety culture if the senior managers are not actively communicating and embracing the concept themselves.
Event manager injury advice – prevention is better than cure
Prevention is always better than cure. We would like to help in preventing an injury to you and your staff while managing an event. Some commonplace safety issues while managing an event include:
- Ensure that an adequate budget is allocated for addressing safety issues.
- Ensure that safety issues are on the agenda for discussion at senior event management meetings.
- Set specific performance and reporting targets for each functional area managed.
- Ensure that specific safety obligations are included in contracts of suppliers.
- Accord the highest priority to safety initiatives when making decisions.

Event manager injury advice – after an accident
If you sustain an injury due to someone’s negligence, then you have a right to claim damages. The event organiser is responsible for the safety of all employees and the visitors to the event. A call to us at Accident Advice Helpline puts you in touch with one of our trained advisors. They will walk you through the event and ask a few questions to establish the facts, while seeking possible grounds of negligence. The advisor will then put you in touch with one of our legal experts best suited to handle your case. Your solicitor then takes the process further and files the injury claim.
