The Emergency Planning College (EPC) has launched its new “Guide to Working in Safety Advisory Groups.”
First published in 2015, the guide has been extensively updated to reflect current risks and challenges in the events industry.
Dr Campbell McCafferty, Director, Civil Contingencies Secretariat, Cabinet Office said: “I welcome the publication of this guidance by the Emergency Planning College (EPC). Safety Advisory Groups are critical in assuring that public safety issues are central to the work of the events industry.
“They have an excellent track record and I have every confidence that the guidance contained here is a strong foundation for future practice. The fact that the Emergency Planning College has worked closely with partners in the entertainment and events industry and in government reflects its commitment to be at the heart of the public safety and resilience community, encouraging debate and reflection where it is needed, and leading the way for practitioners and policy makers in establishing and promoting good practice. I commend it to you and thank my colleagues at the Emergency Planning College for bringing it to you."
