Revised HSE regulations could mean more training and investment for those involved in building temporary structures at events, according to the Institution of Occupational Safety and Health’s (IOSH) Sports Grounds and Events Group.
The warning comes in the light of the HSE’s new look Construction Design Management Regulations (CDM), set to take effect in October 2014.
“Event organisers and those working in safety at events need to realise the impact [these] regulations could have on their day-to-day jobs,” Carl Hagemann, chair of the IOSH group, said.
The IOSH Sports Grounds and Events Group is hosting Event Health and Safety Game Changers on Tuesday 12 November, at Warwick Race Course, in a bid to explain the changes.
The seminar will address concerns surrounding the HSE’s approach to health and safety enforcement at events and how that may be exacerbated further under the new legislation.
