Promote Stop the Drop10 May 2018
Excuse the pun, but we are safe to say that we are in unanimous agreement that we (who supply, organise or provide the venue for events) have a responsibility to keep our teams safe.
Work at height is a common activity when building and dismantling an event. It should always be performed in a safe way using the right equipment. Logic dictates that. Whilst there has been improvements in standards, there are occasions when questionable practices have been witnessed.
Working at any height in an unsafe way can lead to a dangerous situation for both the worker and others who may be working close by as a fall can result in serious or fatal injuries.
It would be timely therefore to remind the industry of the Stop the Drop resource that is available to you for FREE.
There is a dedicated website for the Stop the Drop initiative where all of the resources can be downloaded for use in promoting safe working at height practices during build up and breakdown.
These resources are available for the entire industry to use and are already being adopted by venues, organisers and suppliers, so please feel free to use them at your events.
Visit here to read how The Business Design Centre is adopting these best practises.
