Our new reference series, The IAVM Blueprint, provides in-depth exploration of topics fundamental to successful venue operations.
The series will explore in greater detail the concepts and principles outlined in IAVM's latest textbook, Public Assembly Venue Management: Sports, Entertainment, Meeting, and Convention Venues.
Our first in the series, authored by Kimberly Mahoney, Ph.D., explores the topic of event management within public assembly venues. The IAVM Blueprint: Event Management is designed to assist new event managers and serve as a resource for current industry professionals.
The actions taken in the initial minutes of an emergency are critical. A prompt warning to employees to evacuate, shelter or lockdown can save lives.
A call for help to public emergency services that provides full and accurate information will help the dispatcher send the right responders and equipment. An employee trained to administer first aid or perform CPR can be lifesaving. Action by employees with knowledge of building and process systems can help control a leak and minimize damage to the facility and the environment.
This is what Safety and Security is all about. The IAVM 2017 Venue Safety and Security Survey reports on a comprehensive list of safety and security practices and procedures in use at venues today.
