Every exhibition stand is a miniature workplace and therefore requires a risk assessment. A risk assessment is a review of what (during the build, open and break period of the event) could cause harm to people; it should identify any hazards present on the stand, and detail the ways in which these hazards will be controlled to minimise risk.
The erection of your shell scheme or pavilion stand will be covered by the shell scheme contractor's risk assessment. You must then consider any activities on your stand that may pose significant risk.
Each exhibitor has a legal obligation to assess risk associated with your participation in any event; this form is a guide only and submisson thereof does not absolve you from your legal responsibilities, nor transfer them to the venue.
