Informa has designed a series of safety and security training courses that will help professionals design doable evacuations.

When reviewing the risk assessment of a venue, the planned-for evacuation times from the space will be very different from what happens in reality – rather than everyone leaving the space at the same time immediately.

Approximately a quarter of those at the event will move closer to the issue to have a look especially if it is a fire. Half of the individuals in a concert environment will stay where they are as they will not believe that the issue is real while the remaining 25% will leave the venue immediately.

As a case in point, during the Station Nightclub fire in the US, 100 died, 230 were injured and 132 survived. The numbers were eerily close to Sime’s percentage calculations. This event security training course shows participants how to apply evacuation theory to any workplace.

Guidance and scientific principles often seem to be the first point of contact with any issue. However, the introduction of psychological and social precepts creates a more interdisciplinary approach to these areas and gives a holistic view which is more balanced when dealing with events.

This event management course will focus on a range of planning frameworks for the event and how these work in practice. Plus, thesecurity incident and event management training programme will delve into how the security and crowd management elements are fundamental to the success of an event.
