event, and pack-out. Please refer to the attached hazard register that suggest potential common
hazards that may occur and means of controlling them. Note that this list is not exhaustive and it is

controlled accordingly.

Guidelines for small events – Hazard Register
As the organiser of an event, you are required, under the Health and Safety in Employment Act, to take all
practical steps to eliminate, isolate or minimize hazards in areas affected by and part of the event. To do this
you will need to document and demonstrate what practical steps are been taken to fulfil your obligations.
Events with direct access to Central Otago District Council premises should consider the consequences
associated with the hazards on and around premises when developing their own hazard assessments and
safety for an event.
Hazard: Any source of potential damage, harm or
adverse health effects on something or someone
under certain conditions.
Isolate: Sometimes it is not possible to eliminate all
significant hazards from the area. In this case they
must be isolated. This means separating people
from the hazard (e.g. a physical barrier).
Identify: All hazards should systematically be
identified in areas affected by and part of the event.
Minimise: Sometimes it may not be possible to
eliminate or isolate a hazard. Hazards that can’t be
eliminated or isolated must be minimized as much
as possible (e.g. personal protective equipment).
Eliminate: Once hazards have been identified,
organisers must take all practicable steps to
eliminate significant hazards.
Control: this includes the steps taken to eliminated,
isolate, or minimise the hazard. If the hazard cannot
be eliminated, a process needs to be in place to
monitor the hazard control.
Public Liability Insurance
Central Otago District Council may request the event organiser to obtain Public Liability Insurance. This will
provide protection against claims for compensation in respect of unexpected and unintended personal injury
or property damage for which they may be legal liable arising out of their business activities.
