Have you been hurt at an outdoor event?
Although the United Kingdom isn’t always known for its good weather, many outdoor events are still hosted throughout the year. In the hope of getting good weather, most outdoor events are scheduled in the summer months, with some taking place in late spring or early autumn. Whilst event organisers are sometimes forced to postpone or cancel due to heavy rain, most events take place regardless of the weather.
Fairs, fetes and galas, for example, are often hosted outside and concerts, gigs and festivals are also held in open air environments, such as fields, campsites or stadiums. Of course, much planning goes into these events to ensure that they are safe.
Despite being held outdoors, event organisers must still limit ticket sales and attendance, for example. This can prevent the area from becoming overcrowded and could prevent injuries occurring. This is particularly important at lively events, such as music gigs and concerts, where people could try and rush towards the stage and cause people to get crushed or knocked to the ground.
In addition to this, event organisers will need to ensure that they have trained medical staff on hand to provide assistance to anyone who happens to get hurt or becomes unwell. This is extremely important at outdoor events, although additional medical help can be called for if it is needed.
