Risk and Security Management

A seasoned events planner recognizes the need to take risks and security into consideration while undertaking any type of events planning. An integral part of any events planning diploma will therefore include a course on how to effectively plan, identify, assess, analyze and control risks within the context of special or general types of events. This course will focus on the fundamental methods required to safely plan and manage events, festivals or conferences including but not limited to: health and safety concerns, crowd control, food services, along with alcohol consumption and security management requirements. Students will learn how to manage potential risks by obtaining permits, handling contracts, purchasing insurance, reviewing legal documentation, in addition to effectively prevent and address risk related issues from the inception of the event and up to its delivery.
