Course Information


An ideal course for those whose working environment includes crowded places. Answer the questions: 'What is a Safety Advisory Group (SAG)? How should work and what are the best ways to increase safety at an event?' 

Covering work places, events and contractors, you will learn how to become an effective member of any Safety Advisory Group.   

Reviewing case studies and learning from past experiences, delegates will look at crowded place risk, as well as revisiting the UK Good Practice Guide.

It’s an opportunity to learn from the sources of UK GPG, whose up-to-date knowledge and experience, as well as connections within the industry, are outstanding. 

Our Associates Judy and Vanessa, both experienced SAG Advisors who have contributed their knowledge and writing to national guidance, will discuss the latest problems and information with you.
