Have Your Say in Drafting the new Event Safety (Purple) Guide

As readers may be aware, agreement has been reached between the Events Industry Forum (EIF) and the Health & Safety Executive (HSE) to rewrite the Event Safety Guide – better known as the Purple Guide.

While the new guide will not be as comprehensive as the original, focusing mainly on health and safety at events, the EIF is committed to plugging any gaps by producing a series of additional guidances and bringing all these together on one website as a ‘virtual’ guide to event organisation.

Currently a Steering Group is being set up with the HSE to direct the project and Working Groups are being put together to draft the different sections. Although some changes may be made in the structure of the new Guide, it is anticipated that this will be much the same as the previous Purple Guide.

Register now

The intention is that the process of rewriting the Guide should be as transparent as possible. In order to achieve this progress reports and drafts of each chapter will be available for comment via the EIF website.  Alerts will also be sent out to those registering an interest whenever changes are made to a section.

It is, therefore, important that you register your interests as soon as possible.

To register simply go to:

Although it is likely to be a few weeks before work starts on the new Guide, it is well worth registering now as this will ensure that you are notified with things start to happen.
