Public Safety at Motor Sports

How thoroughly do you consider the safety of the public, volunteers and competitors' crews? Spectators, volunteer marshals, photographers and the press all want to get closer to the action on the day and this carries many inherent risks.

With the current legislation allowing motorsport events to take place more widely, an increase in organised events means public safety will come under heavy scrutiny.

  • Are you prepared as the number of motorsports events in your local area rises?
  • Do you know all the pitfalls and risks?
  • Do you operate a multi-agency approach to your safety plan?

Let us help you to prepare and plan in advance with our course Public Safety at Motorsports course.
