Event Organizer is the person acting as an individual or on behalf of a committee or organization who is in charge of the event. This person maybe a member of staff at the college, a student or a member of the public.

Event organizers have a legal responsibility to ensure the safety of the people attending the event or working at it (paid or voluntary) and must take all actions, in so far as is reasonably practicable to ensure all activities are undertaken in a safe and healthy manner.

An Event Safety form must be completed for any event held on campus grounds or buildings.
