New regulations could call for more training and investment to be necessary when it comes to building event structures.

This is according to the Institution of Occupational Safety and Health (IOSH), which has highlighted how the new Construction Design Management Regulations (CDM) are set to be enforced in October 2014.

Carl Hagemann, chair of the IOSH Sports Grounds and Events Group, said: "Event organisers and those working in safety at events really do need to realise the impact the new CDM regulations could potentially have on their day-to-day jobs."

Mr Hagemann continued by saying that, despite the regulations not arriving for a long time, there is "no time like the present" to begin preparations.

IOSH's Sports Grounds and Events Group will host the Event Health and Safety Game Changers seminar on November 12th at the Warwick Race Course.

It will look at concerns relating to the Health and Safety Executive's (HSE) approach to protecting well being at events and how this could be affected by the new legislation.ADNFCR-2754-ID-801648034-ADNFCR
