Purple Guide

Originally published by the Health & Safety Executive, the Purple Guide is designed to provide guidance for event organisers, suppliers, local authorities and others involved in the outdoor events industry.   Publication of the Guide was taken over by the Events Industry Forum in 2012 when the original guidance was updated.   Since then, the guidance has been substantially expanded and continues to be developed.

Those subscribing to the Guide receive notification of any new chapters and updates as they are completed together with regular ebulletins to keep them up-to-date with the work of the Forum.

The Guide has been written by UK event professionals primarily for the UK.   Outside the UK, while the principles of the Guide should still apply, account will need to be taken of local regulations.”
