A Special Event can be any event that occurs outside the day-to-day operations of your Department. Examples of Special Events include, but are not limited to:
- program graduations
- employee picnics
- political events
- and conferences.
As the event organizer you are responsible for the identification and management of potential risks.
Event organizers can effectively manage risks by anticipating, understanding and making decisions during the event planning process to reduce and control the identified risks. This process is called Risk Management and in order to know what risks need to be managed, a risk assessment needs to be conducted. A risk assessment is the process of identifying and determining the probability of a harmful effect to an individual or to property.
