Risk Assessments

Scottish Exhibition +Conference Centre has produced a sample templateRisk Assessment and Method Statementwhich can be used by both Organisers and Exhibitors of an event being held at the SECC.

Exhibiting companies are responsible to the Organiser for their employees' and Contractors' compliance with health and safety.

The SECC Safety & Security Leaflet contains important information for anyone associated with the event.

Sample Risk Assessment and Method Statement templates have been produced to assist Exhibiting Companies and their Contractors. These also contain important information for both build and exhibition staff.

Please Note: SECC do not require any Exhibitor or Contractors Risk Assessment or Method Statements.  This information should be used by the organiser to compile their Risk Assessment for their event.

The templates must be adopted by anyone who intends to use them by completing the administration section and checking or completing the content where this is required. Use of the templates is not mandatory but will be used as a minimum standard of compliance by the Organisers.  Exhibiting Companies and their Contractors may also use their own documentation either independently or to support the templates if they wish.

Each Company that plans to build their own stand must submit a full method statement incorporating a risk assessment and clearly illustrate how the build, operation and deconstruction of the stand will be done safely.  Exhibiting Companies are also required to submit a set of drawings complete with dimensions and structural calculations for complex stands or structures..

Shell Scheme

Exhibitors who order a shell scheme through the Exhibition Contractor do not need to submit a risk assessment for the build process but should ensure that their stand and their fittings are safe. No documents are required for shell scheme users. However, the Risk Assessment and Method Statement templates contain useful information regarding health and safety and site access and security.

Pop Up Stands

Exhibitors using simple pop-up stands are not required to provide any documents. However, the Risk Assessment and Method Statement templates contain useful information regarding health and safety and site access and security.

The Risk Assessment and Method Statement templates are free of copyright for your use.

The Organisers Risk assessments should be submitted to the Event Manager of your Event at least 7 days prior to your event coming on site.
