The Event Safety Alliance
During an annual meeting of industry professionals, the topic of discussion revolved around the following questions:
- Why are we seeing an increase in injury incidents at events?
- Haven’t these risks always been a part of our business?
- And if so, is the recognition and management of those risks becoming diluted and in some cases do they go unnoticed entirely?
During that discussion, over 300 individuals from various industry career paths unanimously indicated their interest in the creation of an organization to consider the answers to those and other questions. In that moment of universal coalition- the creation if the Event Safety Alliance was realized. A pro-tempore committee began developing a strategy to attract all interested persons working in the industry, regardless of affiliation, to become associated. In addition, the group was challenged with the task of gathering information from our industry’s available knowledge base and expertise. Then, once compiled and vetted, disseminate that information to the industry.
At the time of this writing, over 2000 persons have joined the organization and more join daily.
