As part of the legal requirements, all trade stands and exhibitors must submit a Risk Assessment Form as part of their application.
Using the guidelines below, please look at the possible risks that could affect you as a stallholder and your staff as well as the members of the public. Please outline how you can overcome and minimise the risk on the assessment form. Please complete the form and submitted with your booking form and a copy of your Insurance certificate.
Potential Hazard – Please look at hazards that could potentially cause considerable harm around your workplace. Examples; Look at your stand and space – are there any moving parts or machinery; are cables and electric safe; are there are chemicals or fumes that could be at risk, list risks such as tripping or areas that are slippery.
Who might be at risk? Mainly staff and members of the public. Please ensure that your staff are fully aware of the potential risks and how to deal with them. Anyone working along must be fully assessed as to their ability to ensure that the stand and any machinery are fully checked and that they have made sure that the risk elements are controlled.
How to control the risk? Every stallholder is responsible for its own stand/space and the staff it employees over the show period. The stallholder – the named business – must have all the legal requirements including any certificates that the acting inspector from the council would expect to see on overseeing a site visit. The business must ensure that it has provided training and first aid and precautions to control any situation. Reducing the risk element as much as possible is representing good practice and failure to implement a safe policy will result in legal action.
All shows are a non-smoking zone and all stallholders/traders are responsible for any literature or promotional banners that may be inappropriate for viewing at shows aimed at young children or adults and not to display or promote anything that is unsuitable for children under the age of sixteen. The organisers reserve the right to remove or dismantle any part of the display at their discretion.
