Practical guidance on the systematic management of crowd safety in order to protect both attendees and those involved with event operations. Mainly addressed to organisers but valuable also to venue staff and contractors.

Documents the different approaches that may be adopted at a range of events, from those at existing and established venues - such as sports grounds - to street fairs and carnival processions. In addition to examining broader pertinent issues, such as safety planning, risk assessment, implementation of precautionary measures and emergency procedures, the guidance also covers the subject specific matters of communication and crowd monitoring. Also references relevant legislation.
