Health and Safety DeclarationYour responsibilities for exhibiting at VisitScotland Expo

1. Exhibitor Responsibilities

As an Exhibitor, you must ensure the health, safety and welfare of your employees, contractors and visitors as far as is reasonably practicable throughout the exhibition. You should ensure that your actions (or in-actions) do not give rise to accident, injuries or unsafe working environments, provide proper information, instruction and training and supervise all parties throughout the show. You should also check that any Contractors, suppliers, agent etc. that you may be using have a Health & Safety Policy, suitable to the exhibition environment.

Your attention is drawn to the Health & Safety at Work Act (HASAWA) etc. 1974 and the regulations made under this act and are reminded that the duties imposed by these laws are not reduced, regardless of whether an employer is in their own office or participating at an exhibition. Failure to do so represents a breach of the law, and could result in the prosecution of an exhibitor/contractor by the Health & Safety Executive (HSE).

2. Accidents

If you are involved in or witness an accident, however small, at any point during the tenancy of the exhibition, it is your responsibility to report it to the Organisers’ Desk which is based in the middle of the hall.

3. Fire Safety

SEC has a comprehensive fire detection system which is complemented by sprinkler protection. In the Exhibition Halls fire hose reels are installed at various locations below prominent signs. Alarm points are located at or near fire exits and vehicle doors. In the event of a fire SEC staff will take command of the site. Follow any instructions given by venue staff.
