LPA releases new Safety Guidelines for the Live Entertainment and Events Industries

LPA releases new Safety Guidelines for the Live Entertainment and Events Industries
February 20, 2018

Live Performance Australia (LPA) has released new Safety Guidelines for the Live Entertainment and Events Industry, replace the Employer Guide to occupation health and safety published in 2004.

A statement from LPA explains “the objective of the new Guidelines is to promote best practice in delivering safe events and safe working environments, and raise awareness of the practical and legislative requirements to manage health and safety issues appropriately.

“All members are encouraged to incorporate the new guidance material into your work, health & safety plans, as well as promote the use of the material to non-members and others that may work in our industries.”

LPA will be undertaking a national roadshow in the coming months to promote and provide information on the new guidance material.

The industry peak body, which marked it centenerary in 2017, acknowledged the contributions of all the people who participated on this project and thanks their employers for allowing them to provide their expertise during the project period.
