SITE SAFETY & LEGAL
OCCUPATIONAL HEALTH and SAFETY
All Exhibitors, their employees, contractors, representatives and/or volunteers must abide by the current Work, Health and Safety Act 2012, as amended. The site allocated to you is considered an extension of your workplace. You and the YP Field Days have responsibility for the safety of staff and visitors to your site.
EXHIBITOR SITE SAFETY PLAN
An Exhibitor Site Safety Plan will be provided on collection of site passes. This must then be completed and returned to YP Field Days Chief Executive Officer prior to setting up any site.
Exhibitors displaying and/or demonstrating machinery or any items that may be a potential danger to the public must ensure that every precaution is taken to comply with current safety regulations and requirements.
Exhibitors demonstrating angle grinders, welders and cut-off machines are warned of the danger of flying particles causing fire and eye damage and must comply with safety regulations with proper guards and screens fitted and must have a fire extinguisher available in the demonstration area.
All tent/marquee pegs must be covered and be within the perimeter of exhibitor’s site.
