We have been providing support for large events, high profile companies and clients to venues and businesses for many years. Founded by a specialist in the business, ESS pride themselves on their customer focused support and approach – relevant and appropriate to the industry. SO, what can we offer?



Planning an event? Maybe an outdoor event from 100 people to over 10,000? We can support you whatever the size and nature of the project. We have helped an array of outdoor events, including site specific productions in locations you would never even think an event would take place.

Our support includes pre-event planning, including crowd management, contingency planning, documentation and safety advisory group meetings (SAG). Our on site support, monitoring the event build, live and breakdown will help ensure your event is a success. Have a question relating to this service, or how we can help with your pre-construction phase arrangements or other roles and responsibilities relevant to Construction (Design and Management) regulations (CDM for short), then don’t hesitate to get in touch via our contact page.

Venues and Businesses

If you’re running a venue or business and need support, then feel free to get in touch with us. ESS have provided support to a number of venues throughout the UK, including documentation support, fire risk assessments, production risk assessment reviews, retained services for contact and advice, safety audits and inspections plus many more.

We can offer help and support regardless of the size of venue or its location. We can provide an annual retainer for ongoing advice or support, to project based retained services. This option provides assistance for key projects/productions rather than a full year.  More information can be found about our services by visiting our home page of this website and you can also find our contact details or enquiry form by going to the contact page of this site.

Food Safety

Does your venue, event or business have catering involved? Perhaps it is via an in house culinary team, or concessions for events? We can help ensure that you are fulfilling your due diligence by conducting inspections or audits of these services on your behalf. IN addition to inspections, we can assist you build procedures, HACCP teams and identify critical control points (CCP’s) and providing assistance to you.

This service is available as either an ad hoc arrangements (inspections and audits only), to retained services, either annual or project based (ideal for events for example).
