Event Management Guides

 Event Management Guides

The event organiser and/or the landowner are responsible for Health and Safety of both the public and those taking part in the event. As the event organiser you will need to ensure that you have a named person who is responsible for Health and Safety at your event and have consulted with the Safety Advisory Group (SAG).

The SAG is made up of representatives from Daventry District Council, emergency services, other relevant bodies and the event organiser.

You will need to complete and submit an event risk assessment (see guidance and links below).


SAG will advise the event organiser about public safety matters that they think need further consideration, explaining their reasons. You, as the event organiser, have responsibility to take any appropriate action. On the rare occasion where there is disagreement between a SAG and the event organiser, and there remains a genuine risk to the public, individual organisations on the SAG such as the Police, may decide to act to resolve the issue.
