The Events Industry Forum (EIF), the publisher of the Purple Guide to Health, Safety and Welfare at Music and Other Events, has launched a sister publication for smaller events.

The Purple Guide Lite aims to “provide the basics that event organisers need to consider when planning even small events with only a few hundred attendees”, according to EIF, which took over the guide from the Health & Safety Executive government agency in 2013.

Areas covered in the Lite guide include crowd management, risk assessment, venue design, sanitation, F&B, campsites, electricity, medical support and fire.

It is priced at £10, or free to subscribers of the full guide.
