Symphotech, the event safety management company, has been entrusted to oversee health and safety and sound monitoring at Let’s Rock – The Retro Festival.

With eight locations, Let’s Rock’s organisers UK Live has appointed Symphotech to ensure the highest level of health and safety services.

“As event organisers, UK Live are qualified in event safety, however they have contracted us to ensure quality assurance,” said Symphotech’s legal and safety consultant Eddy Grant comments. “We work closely with their team to quality assure the safety documents, liaise onsite with crew and suppliers and ensure the local authorities are kept up to speed. We act like a principle contractor, managing the event on-site to ensure safety regulations are met.

“The UK Live team are great to work with and we have the confidence in them that what’s being done meets with good practice, however we’re there to respond if any incidents do occur or if safety plans need adapting,” Grant added.

UK Live first contracted Symphotech to oversee health and safety last year. UK Live has continued this relationship and also brought in Symphotech’s noise monitoring team to ensure minimum disruption to the local area.

Symphotech’s event noise management consultant Ian Taylor commented: “This is the first year we’ve managed sound monitoring at the Let’s Rock concert series and the team are great to work with. Before the events, we come on-site to measure general background noise to get an idea of the base level, and continue to take readings throughout the events to ensure sound levels are under control.”
