After focusing on general and weather-related event safety issues in its first two precedent-setting Webinars, Take1 Insurance and the Event Safety Alliance (ESA) will take a more focused, practical look at how to best use the ESA Event Safety Guide. “The ABCs of the Event Safety Guide: A 60-Minute Primer on Putting the Event Safety Guide to Work for You” will take place on Wednesday, July 9, 2014 at 2 p.m. Eastern and once again be hosted by New Bay Media’s Rental & Staging News and moderated by Editorial Director David Keene.

“More than 1,200 industry professionals registered to participate in our first two event safety Webinars,” says Scott Carroll, Executive Vice President & Program Director of Take1 Insurance, “and we couldn’t be more proud of the response received to date and the requests for follow up information that each Webinar has generated. The live event industry is taking safety to heart and, as the entertainment industry’s leading insurance provider, we understand just how important this is to producing safer live events.”

In addition to Event Safety Alliance Executive Director Jim Digby, the July 2014 Webinar will feature Joseph Pred, founder and CEO of Mutual Aid Response Services (MARS), based in San Francisco. MARS provides services to the special event industry, as well as the non-profit, industrial and corporate sectors; specifically, comprehensive consulting, risk management, and operations with a focus on emergency medical, communications and fire services to supplement on-site resources and provide contracted first response to any emergency. Pred has been an active member of the Event Safety Alliance since 2012 and has more than 20 years of experience working in the event management and safety industry.

Pred’s presentation will include an overview of the Event Safety Guide, how it ties in to existing standards such as the public safety incident command system, and how to use the guide in areas both familiar and unfamiliar to specific areas of expertise. He will walk participants through a demonstration of a typical event and explain how to apply the guide to various aspects of planning and operational phases. A variety of special considerations, such as electronic music events, unfenced or un-ticketed events will also be reviewed. The webinar will conclude with a Q&A period for those who have specific questions about their event and integrating the use of the Event Safety Guide.

“The partnership between Take1 Insurance and the Event Safety Alliance becomes more important every day,” ESA Executive Director Jim Digby says. “Take1’s continued sponsorship of these vitally important Webinars demonstrates a commitment to event safety that is second to none in the industry today. They are to be commended for all they do to promote the production of safer live events.”
