Event Health and Safety

Do I need a first aider or other medical provision at my event?

The level of medical provision required will depend on many contributing factors such as the nature of the event, its location, proximity to definitive care, expected numbers, type and age groups attending, etc.

You are advised to carry out a medical and first aid assessment and to contact the local NHS ambulance service.

The Events Industry Forum’s purple guide includes example first-aid and medical assessments for an audience at an event.
