Event & Exhibit Safety

When planning an event or exhibit/project in public spaces, you are responsible for protecting the safety and health of its participants, audience members, and organizers. How you plan to do so should be outlined in a safety plan.

Event Safety Guidelines

The purpose of these guidelines is to provide event planners with practical suggestions and safer options for many aspects of events, as well as complement the Guidebook to Planning Events @ MIT, which includes a short section about safety considerations. The MIT EHS Office is available to help apply these guidelines and create solutions for your event.

The event sponsor is responsible for the safety of the event and can designate someone to be the event safety representative to fulfill this commitment.
