Risk Management for Public Venues and Events

Risk Management for Public Venues and Events
April 21, 2010

An interactive two-day workshop will explore how to prepare, respond and recover to mitigate the consequences of emergencies at venues and events.

Risk Management for Public Venues and Events will be held in Sydney on 21st and 22nd June 2010.

According to a spokesperson from organiser Marcus Evans, "with the 'unknown certainty' of unexpected occurrences, human behavior and the margin of error, it is impossible to ensure a risk free environment at Australiaâs public venues and events - incidents will happen and emergencies will arise.

"A good risk management approach includes three primary elements: a threat assessment, a vulnerability assessment, and a criticality assessment.

"These assessments provide vital information for the protection patrons and the physical venue. By identifying vulnerabilities and gaps, venue managers and event organizers will thus be able to harden the facility and improve physical protection systems as well as developing or updating emergency response and evacuation plans.

"Venue managers need to be aware of risk assessment methodologies to detect threats, identify vulnerabilities, and reduce consequences. Information gathered through this process is extremely valuable for enhancing security measures."

This two-day Risk Management for Public Venues and Events workshop will delve into risk assessment and analysis, address the need for risk assessments at venues and events, as well as explaining specific risk assessment models.

As the Marcus Evans spokesperson continues, "however, robust you believe your risk management system or plan to be, disaster has an uncanny way of striking when you become complacent or content with your current security practices.

"It is a challenge and an ongoing battle which never goes away - how to be vigilant, stay alert and be prepared for the 'unthinkable'."

Key benefits of the workshop will include:

• Understanding and applying the different standards in use to govern the industry;
• Practical approach to risk assessment and analysis;
• Delving into specific risk assessment models and framework;
• Creating a risk awareness culture and embedding risk into the business;
• Event risk planning and preparing for different types of events; and
• Emergency readiness and preparedness.

The course is led by Wayne Middleton of Reliance Risk and facilitated by Peter Ross of Reliance Risk.
