At public events with large crowds, it is vital for there to be effective professional event medical cover to ensure people’s safety and well-being. As according to the law, it is the responsibility of employers, and people in control of the premises to look after the health and safety of their employees and other people that could possibly be harmed by work activities or the workplace (such as the audience). If you are organising an event and need Event First Aid Cover, I highly recommend contacting Outdoor Medical Solutions. Read on to find out more ways to ensure people’s safety at an event.
Firstly, to make sure the people at an event are safe, there must be enough medical provision at the event so that there are enough people trained in first aid to help people swiftly in case of a medical emergency.
Next, event organisers must perform a medical resource assessment of the event to ensure that there is everything on the premises for medical emergencies. For example, there must be a defibrillator nearby, and multiple ones if the venue is very big, in case someone has a heart attack.
Another thing to do in order to ensure the health and safety of everyone attending and working at an event, is that medical staffing should be planned before the event. This is why it is recommended that you hire an external company that provides event medical cover.
Lasty, you should make sure that you have the proper medical insurance so that you are protected in case of a medical accident. Medical provision must be provided and available for the whole duration of the event.
