Course description

 

Taking Creativity Seriously

"The responsibility of people's safety and lives cannot be underestimated and has to be taken seriously. The author of risk assessments takes responsibility for their content and a number have been challenged in court and a few have served a prison sentence. This Diploma aims to address the quality and skills needed. We take individuals experienced in events, provide them with the knowledge needed - inspire them, assess them, award them and have some fun." Richard Limb of NOEA

The Diploma in Events Safety Management is ideal for practising event professionals who are responsible for health and safety or customer protection at festivals, sporting events, public gatherings, commercial and not for profit events, as well as large-scale and international association meetings.

You'll begin the course with a three day workshop in Events Safety Management. You'll then attend a two day workshop in Events Legislation and a further two day workshop in Crisis Communication and Reputation Management.

On successful completion of the Events Legislation module you will meet the academic requirements for Tech IOSH.

All our online materials have been developed to be fully interactive and include video case studies from major events, talking heads from industry professionals and activities that encourage debate on our discussion board.
