Staying safe at events is something we’re all taught from a young age. Whether it’s ‘don’t talk to strangers’ or keeping an eye on our personal belongings, we all have a built-in awareness that helps us with staying safe at events. However, many of us will be a victim of circumstances beyond our control, with some accidents taking place which we can’t anticipate.
In a number of these situations, the person or body responsible for organising the event can be to blame. It is their responsibility to ensure the overall safety of attendees, and if there are any failings in following safety procedures or regulations, they could be liable to pay compensation.
Staying safe at events
You can play your part in staying safe at events, by taking your own safety precautions, such as:
- Keep an eye out for moving vehicles, as well as animals which may be present in the area
- Stand within a safe distance from any machinery or structures
- Avoid large crowds if you feel claustrophobic and find a first aider or steward if you begin to feel faint or unwell
- Keep children close by and make sure they wear colourful, identifiable clothing
- Carry water with you to stay hydrated
Despite adhering to these common-sense safety tips, event goers could still find themselves involved in an accident. If the accident wasn’t your fault, you may have grounds to make a claim for compensation.
