To support the work that the International Operations, Health, Safety and Security Group (IOHSS) are conducting, the Ops Hub now includes resources that will help teams overseas.
The group has collaborated to create documents, assessments and checklists that can be downloaded and used for the benefit of AEO members, aiding you on site.
This resource will continue to evolve based on the outputs from the IOHSS group – but all members are welcome to feedback on any gaps or additional support that you may need.
In addition to this, the group endorses the gGuide as a useful tool to offer guidance on Health and Safety globally, and AEO sits on the committee that maintains this.
A link to the gGuide can be found here: http://theg-guide.org/
Part of the IOHSS Group’s strategy is to establish best practice guidelines that can be implemented globally by organisers and venues.
The following “toolbox” has been compiled to support teams understand what to look out for in relation to fire safety in venues overseas.
The aim is to get as many organisers using it as possible to generate consistencies in approach, and therefore set some best practice standards.
If you feel that you would like some more support, please give a member of the AEO team a shout and put your suggestions forward by emailing Jo@aeo.org.uk and Zahra@aeo.org.uk.
A venue piece, looking at how to communicate effectively and set standards universally is in the process of being created and will be added in due course.
