 If you are using Crowd Control Barriers at your Site or Event, the Health and Safety Executive recommends a Risk Assessment to help you Choose the Right Crowd Control Barriers for your Site and Event Safety.

 In the Planning Stage start by thinking about

  • The Event Layout
  • The Site Layout
  • How you will use Pedestrian Barriers
  • How Many People are you Expecting
  • What type of Crowd are you Expecting
  • Is your Site Indoor / Outdoor or Both
  • Are there Weather Considerations
  • How strong will your Control Barriers need to Be

Your Risk Assessment will help you Choose the Right Crowd Control Barriers for your Site and Event Safety.

The priority here is to ensure your chosen Crowd Control System does not present a Greater Risk to Controlling Crowds due to selecting the wrong type of Safety Barriers for your Secure Site.

Whilst Installing and Dismantling Control Barriers can Be Relatively Simple.

Your Risk Assessment should provide you with the additional measures needed based on your Customers attending the Site

Remember to include the Integration with other Control Measures, including your Site Security Personnel.
