Working at height in the event industry continues to be one of the most hazardous activities that takes place on the fast paced event floor. As a result AEV, AEO and ESSA launched a scheme in 2016 named ‘Stop the Drop’, aimed at promoting best practice and ultimately to prevent falls from height whilst working on events. The scheme has been endorsed by many venues and key contractors, being a welcomed and promoted campaign.
The website for the scheme provides a number of posters, images and advice for a variety of stakeholders including venues, designers, contractors, event organises etc. free of charge. Before your next event, take a look at the site; download some of the material and help promote the message.
