What safety precautions should we take when hosting a marketing event?
We have a 4-day interstate corporate marketing event at a convention centre where we are having a stand built. We were looking at the safety checklists, and were uncertain which one prevails in this instance. In the handbook, chapter M2 Managing Work-Related Functions talks more about social functions … but it’s the closest that I could find. Would this be correct?
Yes. The checklists of chapter M2 concern work-related functions. which include functions organised and financed directly by your business and planned in advance (and not just social events), which appears to be the case with your corporate marketing event. If you will only have a small number of workers attending the event, you might also want to review the checklists in chapter WS Working Alone.
