Safe Event Scheme Launches The Affiliate Partner Programme

26 Jun 2020

Following the recent launch of its website and event planning app, Safe Event Scheme has launched its Affiliate Partner Programme for event industry associations, event trade federations, and sport’s governing bodies.

By being affiliated to the Safe Event Scheme, organisations are able to empower their member associations, sports clubs and venues to meet best practice standards, as set by their own guidance. At the same time, the public attending these events will benefit from a widely recognisable, cross-sector, assurance mark.

The vision for the scheme is to create an instantly recognisable universal ‘kitemark’ for event safety which can be applied to any cultural or sporting event, regardless of size, venue or complexity. As part of that vision, our Affiliate Partner Programme will enable organisations to ensure the Safe Event Scheme accreditation process is aligned with their own codes of practice and guidance.

Promoting competent event safety compliance, in response to COVID19, events accredited by the scheme are able to demonstrate their commitment to operating responsibly and provide assurance to event visitors, spectators, staff and participants.

Providing the event-going public with a universal assurance mark, the Safe Event Scheme logo demonstrates that their safety, and that of event workers, suppliers and the wider community, has been planned and managed responsibly by the organiser. By working with the event industry’s highly respected associations and governing bodies, the scheme is able to ensure the public benefits from the clarity of that message whilst also safeguarding that its accredited events meet sector specific protocols.

Where the scheme’s accreditation applicants are not already members of an affiliated organisation, the Safe Event Scheme advisory panel, who assesses accreditation applications, will evaluate submitted plans against the guidance of the appropriate body, referring the applicant to the relevant guidance, where necessary. This will, in-turn, enable affiliated organisations to communicate their specific safe event guidance to non-member event professionals operating within their sector.

Safe Event Scheme Project Director, Carl Thompson, commented: “The Affiliate Partner Programme is a critical aspect of the way in which the scheme seeks to provide assurance to the public and help re-build the events industry.”
