The preparation of a Risk Assessment is now an essential requirement for anyone planning a community event.
This book is intended as a guide for those unfamiliar with organising fairs, village fetes and town centre celebrations; and a handy revision guide for those more experienced.
It is based on the author’s experience as Project Manager on a wide variety of community events as well as Christmas Lights, Farmers Markets, Continental Markets and late night shopping events.
During 10 years as Hertford Town Centre Manager he worked closely with Council Officers, the Emergency Services and Highways Agencies.
A Risk Assessment is not designed to make event management difficult but to help the organiser identify and minimise potential risks to the general public.
