PRESENTATION: The Green Guide 2018: An E3S exclusive preview
The new Green Guide is launched on the evening of E3S. Ken Scott, head of inspectorate for the Sports Ground Safety Authority, previews the new guide including its important coverage of areas outside of sports ground (Zone EX). The Green Guide is a fundamental piece of guidance for events taking place in stadia and much of the good practice identified has also been applied to other venues.
One significant issue is the remit of the venue and where the ethical and legal responsibilities lie in relation to the duty of care for those attending an event. This focuses on both the phases of arrival and departure, which continue to be an important area of tension. Ken will focus on this and the many and varied interpretations by governing bodies and how this might affect events in the future.
