IOSH Working Safely at Events

Welcome to an event-specific IOSH safety training course delivered by experienced event professionals.

Are you and your team involved in producing and managing events, but don’t have any formal event safety training? Our ‘Working Safely at Events’ course might be for you!


Are you confident in your whole team’s ability to identify hazards, evaluate risk, decide on control measures and keep you, your clients, your business and your customers safe?

Our one day course will take you and your team through the key pieces of health and safety legislation, understanding their own responsibilities when it comes to safety and health, show them how to conduct thorough risk assessments and manage risk on site at events. All delivered in the context of your business and your business activity.

The course can be delivered via Zoom in either two 3 hour blocks, or four 90 min sessions. Each delegate will receive a printed workbook through the post and, on passing the assessment, an IOSH certificate.

“This is an excellent course which engaged all of the team and will certainly prove to be beneficial moving forward.”
