Weslo presents a deep and broad understanding about event management with a focus on best practices..
If you are considering organising amusement rides as part of your event program then you need to first gain approval from the venue and/or local council before confirming the booking. If approved consider the associated risks and ensure that adequate controls are in place to provide safe amusement rides.
The following excerpt has been taken from the WorkSafe document ‘Advice for Managing Major Events Safely’ 1st edition, April 2006
While the formal approach to controlling risk involves applying the hierarchy of controls, some standard controls normally considered include:
Specifically related to inflatable amusement rides the following are requirements:
Most Event Organisers will engage external service providers at some stage of the event planning phase. This may include but is not limited to any of the following:
When entering into a contract, you want to make sure you are getting what you need and what you are paying for. Therefore, it is highly desirable that all contracts be in writing in the form of a letter supported by written agreement to document exactly what you want and are and are not paying for. This also avoids misunderstandings and minimises arguments over what has been agreed.
On occasion service providers sub-contract their services to another party. As an event organiser you need to be aware and approve the company that is working on your event site. If you are happy for a service provider to sub contract the services that you have requested then you need to make sure you have a copy of the relevant documentation such as insurances and licenses. Whether it is a direct service provider or a sub-contracted provider, you should demand the same level of skill, experience and documentation.
If you require temporary infrastructure such as marquees, staging and seating stands then you will also need to make sure that the person overseeing the contract and all staff working within the construction site are properly qualified to do so.
In the Event Plan record all the contracts and agreements and supporting documentation required to oversee these contracts.
