PEARLE (the body which represents live performance employers’ associations across Europe) and the European Arts and Entertainment Alliance (the body which represents workers in the Arts and Entertainment sector in Europe) have developed two online risk assessment tools to assist venues and production companies.
PEARLE and the EAEA acknowledged the diverse range of factors to be considered in relation to health and safety in the live performance sector and decided to create the tools as they came to the conclusion that special, sector-specific risk assessment approaches are vitally necessary to prevent accident and injury.
One of the tools is geared towards venues in the performing arts and the other is intended to facilitate risk assessment for productions. Certain modules and elements are common to both and both include a specific section addressing the vital coordination and communication between the venue and the production company. The tools have been developed to give venues, production companies and all those working in the sector a roadmap to address the various challenges they encounter.
The tools are available here.BACK
