Marquee Hire Health and Safety

Our company policy maintains that we adhere to a strict Health & Safety code of practice. A full risk assessment is available upon request detailing all hazards and risks associated with all equipment used by us at your event. All risks are re-evaluated at each event in question and decisions are then made with you the client and us, to decide whether existing precautions are adequate and the right control measures are in place.

A risk assessment is nothing more than a careful examination of what could cause harm to people. It reduces any dangers by weighing up whether enough precautions have been taken to reduce harm to you the client, and us the company. This simple common sense approach ensures that your event is a safe one.

The manufacturer of all our standard marquees is a member of the Performance Textiles Association formally known as MUTA and certified ISO 9001 2000 by Lloyds Register Quality Assurance (LRQA).

Health & Safety Risk Assessments

To assist in drawing up the necessary risk assessments for an event, the following lists maybe useful. They are not intended to be all encompassing you can pick out the sections which may affect the event that you are planning. Grade all risks identified as High, Medium or Low. Obviously high risks should be eliminated prior to the event or alternatively it may be better to adopt a less risky option, prevent access to the hazard or reduce exposure to the hazard.

A risk assessment is carried out by the company on the erection of all structures and is documented.
