Event Safety Management and Xi Safety TM Inc

Posted on

 Recently we were asked about providing services for an event to be held in the community.  Event Safety Management is just as important as any project safety management plan and even more so, because in addition to having to consider and plan around the actual event performers, you also have to factor in public safety as well.

We like to think that risk management can go one step further to actually be risk prevention planning.  At Xi Safety we believe that event safety management is simply more than putting a few people in security uniforms and possibly adding in a requirement of first aid.

Many of us have seen in the media actual live footage of outdoor fairs or concerts where disaster has struck, whether its been a stage collapse, rigging failures, severe weather or other factors that can affect for example, movie productions or outdoor venues.

But to stage a successful event, it all has to start with a well thought out and documented Event Safety Management Plan.  At Xi Safety Inc we’ve developed an excellent blue print that takes into account how local OHS Acts, Regulations, and assorted codes not only provide the frame work for events to be safely staged, but also that much needed road map that takes us through the 30 plus special considerations that are required to go into successful event planning to allow events to be staged without incident.  If your organization or company requires professional event safety management, including film and commercial productions, concerts and other large scale events, Xi Safety Inc and Event Safety Management come together seamlessly with your idea and our expertise.  From Event Safety planning to your medical, security, health and safety needs  at your facility, Xi Safety Inc has you covered.
