Today’s special events are much more complex; beyond the many logistics, event planners and managers have the concerns of risk management and duty of care. These include liability and security for the event. Focus One Group International has been providing special event protective services for clients on a local, national and international basis and the types of events range from private corporate events, film festivals, major sporting events and red-carpets.

Focus One Group International are experienced in managing media, paparazzi and other types of distractions that may occur at a public or private event. Our management team and personnel recognize the importance of discretion and professionalism when addressing related challenges. In establishing effective access control, our specialists are accustomed to managing the demands of high-profile or sophisticated attendees.

Together, “policies and procedures” provide a roadmap for day-to-day operations of an event. They ensure compliance with (local) laws and regulations and provide guidance for decision-making.

The legal definition of duty of care for an event is “a requirement that a person act toward others and the public with the watchfulness, attention, caution, and prudence that a reasonable person in the circumstances would use”. If a person’s actions do not meet this standard of care, then the acts are considered as negligent.

In today’s “Social Media” society if an event goes well images and video will be posted on Facebook, Instagram, Twitter and snapchat. At the same time should an incident occurs like a shooting, stage collapse etc, it will again be posted on Facebook, Instagram, Twitter, and Snapchat and could go “viral” making sure that your event complies with the “Duty of Care” requirements will guard against any mishaps.
