The Institution of Occupational Safety and Health (IOSH) has announced its Managing Safely in the Music and Entertainment Industry course.

Lasting for four days, it is aimed at venue and technical managers in a bid to train them to handle the dangers associated with large-scale crowds and music events.

The course has been adapted by Live Nation Entertainment (LNE) and FLX Consulting and is now part of the former's suite of health and safety-related training.

LNE group health and safety advisor Peter Gates said: "When you hear about real life incidents that can and do happen, we want to make sure the training we give to our staff is totally relevant to our business."

Mr Gates explained that the course is about making sure staff are provided with the skills and knowledge required to manage risks.

A number of festivals, including Leeds/Reading and Download, have already announced lineups for this summer, and this course could help to ensure music fans remain safe.ADNFCR-2754-ID-801533979-ADNFCR
