Event fire safety risk assessments

For any outdoor event, festival, mass gathering etc. to run safely, it is essential that there is suitable and sufficient pre-planning on behalf of all stakeholders involved. This should result in the production of an Event Management Plan.

As part of the Event Management Plan, you must conduct a fire safety risk assessment. This will enable you to identify hazards and take actions necessary to reduce the risk to anyone attending your event or venue. Some hazards will predominately be the same in all types of premises; however, there may be some hazards unique to open air events and venues.

Some of the areas you should consider are (this list is not exhaustive and in no particular order):

To assist you with this process, the Event Safety Group of the Chief Fire Officers’ Association (CFOA) has developed the following guidance and templates to enable a consistent approach to information giving, gathering, planning and recording, including:

The Event Organisers Checklist

The Food Concessions Fire Risk Assessment template

The Traders and Market Stalls Fire Risk Assessment template

The Temporary Structures Fire Risk Assessment template

These templates have been produced primarily for use by small and medium sized food concessions, traders and market stall holders to help them fulfil their obligations under the Regulatory Reform (Fire Safety) Order 2005. Provision of these templates does not preclude the use of other risk assessment tools in order to provide a suitable and sufficient risk assessment. In addition, they may not be suitable for larger scale structures or operations which may require a more detailed risk assessment to be undertaken.

The responsibility for producing a suitable and sufficient fire risk assessment rests with the ‘responsible person’ as defined by the Regulatory Reform (Fire Safety) Order 2005. Dorset & Wiltshire Fire and Rescue Service and the Chief Fire Officers’ Association accept no responsibility for the suitability of any completed risk assessments produced using these templates.
