Event organization is one of the most difficult tasks. This is because it involves a number of people, huge endorsement and most importantly, the stake of reputation. Just a very small incident during an event can turn down priceless hard work, splendid initiatives and consistent efforts. Thus, in order to organize an event, there should be 100 % proximity and accuracy.
The fashion parade at the old theatre is an amazing initiative and the venue selected for the event is intuitive to the requirements of the event. However, due to lack of safety measures, each endeavor may come down to a sudden hurdle, something that may cost life and reputation.
1.Safety Risks in the event
A number of safety risks are uplifted in the event. Firstly, the drapes over the ceiling will obscure the normal lighting. This may affect the light, which should be present at the theatre during the event. The person may fall due to unavailability of proper light. Moreover, this may also lead to the situation of stampede as people may fall one after other. Another, risk is due to the hurdle caused to the fire sensors and the drapers. The fire sensors can cut off from the room and in case there is a chance of fire, the fire sensors may not detect the same leading the fire to go big, without anyone being aware of it. Isolation of water sprinklers further escalates this risk factor. Another, risk factor is due to excessive props at all the openings. In case, there is a situation where the theatre people have to evacuate in a minor time to preserve life, the props can be a hindrance and can restrict the people to move out swiftly.
2.Who is responsible for the safety?
The event organizers are responsible for the safety of people. It is due to their initiatives that people will come to witness the parade. Hence, it is their responsibility that every single person should go harmless, enjoying the show thoroughly.
3.Who all should be discussed for the risks associated with the events?
The organizers needs to have a proper safety management team, who can crosscheck each and every thing before the event starts and have all the safety measures so as to safeguard the people, in case a risk situation occurs. The organizers need to inform about all the steps, which they will take for organizing the event. They should discuss with the safety management team. The event should start only after safety management team has properly checked the entire theatre for safety measures.
