Crowd safety at events should be the of the upmost importance to any event organiser. Attendees who purchase tickets for events will naturally assume that the event they are attending will be safe. The findings from the Manchester bombing incident have brought about new legislation which dictates that event organisers should take all reasonable steps to ensure the safety of their customers and staff and any other person at the location. Failure to do so then they are held accountable and could face either prosecution or claims for financial compensation.
For years there has been a misconception around the terminology of Crowd Control, which is in fact a methodology used as a reactive response when problems have arisen. With the introduction of the new legislation, focusing on Martyn’s law and the Protect Act, there are extra liabilities for event organisers, therefore making the need for more proactive professional crowd safety management and planning more apparent.
