COVID SAFE Event Checklist

COVID SAFE Event Checklist

As an event organiser, you have a duty of care – to both your attendees and your staff. It is always important to consider health and safety risks for your event but COVID-19 has added a new set of rules to implement.
Events will need to adopt new policies and procedures to minimise physical contact and maximise the health and well-being of their attendees.

Below is a quick Safety Checklist for a COVID SAFE Event.

Assess your risks and safety steps
Identify the event risks and options aimed to reduce COVID-19 transmission risk. For example the number of attendees; attendees in a high-risk group; indoor vs. outdoor event. Create a safety checklist to include the industry and government guidelines e.g. face coverings and hygiene for attendees and staff and potentially to reducing event capacity.

Implement safety steps

  • Get up-to-date information on any COVID-19 recommendations and restrictions in the lead up to your event.
  • Provide access to hand sanitiser stations
  • Provide instructions on proper handwashing at handwashing stations
  • Create an event-specific medical response plan
  • Develop plans for quickly and safely evacuating an event.
  • Determine event capacity based on venue size and physical distance/density of attendees.
  • Enforce all safety protocols, including physical distancing e.g. queuing areas and  modifying seating arrangements.
  • Regularly clean and disinfect commonly touched surfaces like tables, doorknobs, light switches, countertops, handles, toilets, taps, sinks, etc
  • Create a plan for contacting event-goers after the event, should it become necessary to notify them of exposure to COVID-19.
  • Use a contactless method for verifying event tickets/invitations and payment

Providing security staff at the event can be an excellent way to keep emotions, behaviour and good cheer under control!
