The first volume of the Manchester Arena Inquiry, released in June 2021, focuses on security at the arena and found a series of serious shortcomings with significant recommendations for the Protect Duty consultation. This half-day conference will assess the findings from the Manchester Arena Inquiry and evaluate how legislation could be used to enhance the protection and safety of public spaces.
With coronavirus (COVID- 19) restrictions easing and large events returning to full capacity, join us to discuss how the events industry is adapting to the pandemic and the new challenges that have emerged. The hospitality and events industry has been one of the hardest hit sectors in the UK as numerous lockdowns and event cancellations have rendered many skilled staff unemployed. This detrimental loss of skilled staff and equipment is now posing a threat to public safety, and in this session you will understand the health and safety risks caused by the pipeline shortage and how the industry is reacting with strategies to mitigate these resourcing challenges.
To help manage the impact and infection rates, Public Health England (PHE) and Local Authority Chief Executives have been working closely with Safety Advisory Groups. This conference will evaluate how they have been collaborating and what this new way of working means for the future of public safety.
