Information that will help organisers ensure the health and safety of employees working on rides and attractions and of members of the public using them.

Your duties as an event organiser

Organisers must as far as reasonably practicable, maintain the overall safety of any amusement or attraction onsite so that people setting up, breaking down or using an amusement ride or attraction are not exposed to risks to their health and safety.

Where you have contracted someone to do this for you, eg a fairground organiser, just like any other contractor you should do all that is reasonably practicable to make sure they are competent and adequately resourced to undertake their safety role effectively.
