Crowd control has always been one of the biggest challenges faced by those who plan and organize events. Providing insurance to these types of events can also prove to be something of a nightmare. While tricky enough to begin with, the novel coronavirus has only complicated matters. Now, concert risk management strategies need to go above and beyond in order to guarantee the safety of each and every person who is in attendance. Though fraught with obstacles, this path is far from impossible to navigate.
Common Ways of Handling a Crowd
Barriers and similar structures to improve crowd control are some of the most important features involved with running an event. In the past, stampeding groups of people that needed to suddenly exit an outdoor arena or event space caused trampling’s that resulted in massive injuries to many in the crowd. Since crowds are no longer allowed in the same capacity in light of COVID-19 restrictions, insurance providers must now arrange a way for these same crowd-control methods to be enforced with smaller numbers of people. Other points worth consideration include:
- Health initiatives to limit virus spread
- Stations with ample sanitizer
- Event worker education and training
