You are required by law to provide this document. It is compulsory, there are no exceptions.


Documents subject to change as not all risk can be anticipated.


You are required to carry a copy of your organisation’s Health & Safety Policy with you at all times during the show.

Please remember Health & Safety requirements are put in place to reduce risk of injury or death, by taking common-sense decisions. The process of Risk Assessment helps formalise your strategies for carrying out tasks, so you apply more care and attention.

You need to show awareness of the risks and dangers posed, and take responsibility for ensuring the law is complied with. Please do not ignore it as all local authorities and venues see this as standard practice.

Health & Safety Risk Assessment Record

  • A Risk Assessment Record must be completed each time you exhibit. Since 1995, it has been a legal requirement for all employees and self-employed people to carry out a suitable and sufficient risk assessment of their activities at work which could affect the health and safety of themselves, their employees or anyone else (such as contractors, customers etc.) If an incident occurs, the investigating authorities will ask to see evidence of this risk assessment.

If you cannot show that you have given ‘reasonably practical’ consideration to working safely it becomes more difficult to demonstrate your responsible approach. The checklist below is designed to assist you in your legal duties and to demonstrate responsible attitude. It is not a means of making you ‘guarantee’ you will never cause an accident, as the unforeseen can always occur. The law requires that you take reasonable steps to try and be as safe as possible and use a logical method of checking that you have done so


Please take time to consider how you construct and display your products and tick the items appropriate to your stand.

  1. Identify potential hazards which you could responsibly expect to result in harm under the conditions of the exhibition (please tick all appropriate to your stand)


2. Please tick persons who could be harmed.


3. Please tick any of the precautions listed below which will be in place to avoid these hazards.
