Nobody argues with the need for fire safety and keeping your venue, and everyone in it, safe from harm.

There are laws and duties imposed specifically on event organisers to ensure fire safety is considered, but there’s more at stake than simply protecting yourself from falling foul of regulations. Of course you need to know your legal duties and responsibilities so you understand what is required for fire safety in every activity required for your event, and you need to plan for it from the start.

Fire safety laws for events have recently changed and many owners, promoters and organisers are not up to speed. Your event requires properly written risk assessments and a specific plan specific tailored to your event. Forewarned is forearmed, right? Well, yes, but mandatory fire risk assessment, crowd dynamics and emergency evacuation planning are specialist subjects and exactly the kind of thing you can’t leave to chance.

That’s where we come in. Your event staff need to work safely but they need to be able to get the job done too, and as with all event safety you need safe hands, sound advice and a team of consultants who know how to take care of the details whilst keeping the goal of a successful and enjoyable event in mind.

Symphotech can assist with fire safety risk assessments, strategy and planning, and hands-on management during the event. Additionally we are experienced in crowd safety calculations, crowd dynamics assessment and evacuation strategy planning so you don’t need to be.
