Risk assessment on show continues

GYMPIE Show Society secretary Melanie Green got the shock of her life when she attended a course for event managers recently.

Ms Green learned if an accident happened at the show she, as the only paid person in the group, would be liable for damages.

“I found out that I would be the one who got hunted down if there was an incident and I heard of some examples where event managers were jailed,” she said.

From that course Ms Green  started putting together an event manual and risk assessments, then workplace health and safety arrived requesting the society demonstrate its capacity to ensure the public’s safety during all aspects of the show. This process is currently taking place.
