Safety at Sporting Venues

Course Details

Never has it been more important to ensure safety, security and success of events at sporting venues.

In partnership with the Sports Ground Safety Authority (SGSA) and our wider partners in government and professional bodies, this gives the latest advice to improve safety and security at sporting venues for any event.

Ensuring a risk based approach is a critical activity which is embedded throughout this course. From the public travelling to the venue, enjoying the event and getting home again. We consider normal and emergency conditions at every phase to ensure good planning and management to ensure a successful event.
