Festivals - First-Aide


Usually taking place over several days including weekends and involving camping, music festivals present a formidable challenge when it comes to the delivery of safety, particularly the safety of attendees.

At First Aide Health and Safety Ltd we have the necessary safety experience to deliver safety for all at such events, and with appointed safety officers can help resolve problems as they arise not only during the planning stages with local authorities, but also throughout the duration of  the festival itself.

Our consultants can be present throughout the festival, working closely with the event organisers, promoters, security, Gardaí and local authorities to identify issues and resolve them.
