Have you ever felt overwhelmed by the responsibility for keeping your people and events safe? You may already have some of the pieces to get started. By harnessing skills you already use to present events, you will learn how to figure out what you need, what you’ve got, and where to start. This session will help you focus your efforts and tackle occupational health and safety with confidence.

Kevin specializes in predicting, managing and reigning in the unpredictable risks that can unfold in an instant in the event field. From small scale soccer games to specialty off-the-grid events and all the way up to renowned multi-day music festivals with tens of thousands of spectators, he and his team have tackled it all.
