The goal of event safety planning is the prevention of injury to spectators, participants and staff at public events. Many accidents at special events are preventable. The use of proper safety equipment will ensure the efficient crowd control as well as compliance with government regulations.
Signage, barriers and fencing must be installed at specific locations to guide crowd and vehicular flow, implement street closures and delineate boundaries. Some of the safety equipment required by local authorities to implement approved crowd control plan include:
- efficiently manage crowd flow and vehicle traffic
- typically used to define event boundaries and safety zones
• Traffic cones - are used to channel the flow of vehicles
