RETHINKING RISK AT LIVE EVENTS
Presented by Take1 Insurance
Staging company executives are good at calculating the TCO (total cost of ownership) of the latest new projector or other piece of gear they’re thinking of adding to their arsenal of equipment. But do they follow the same due diligence when it comes to risk assessment and protection strategies as they do when shopping for a new 40K lumens projector? Even in a healthy market, staging companies can only be profitable when they properly manage the risks on the business/operations side. Shifting industry dynamics, high-profile accidents with industry-wide repercussions, the increasing number of outdoor events, and escalating safety-related liability exposure have all changed the business landscape.
A staging company can only prepare for every contingency if it is up to speed with the latest best practices for risk reduction. These best practices include: examining the cost of not doing the right kind of risk assessment; moving insurance costs from an operating expense line item to a strategic expense; determining the right formula for insurance costs as a percentage of total costs; properly evaluating RFQs when choosing among competing quotes for insurance coverage; and partnering with the right kind of insurance provider.
REMINDER: CROWD SAFETY SYMPOSIUM
The next two installments of the ESA’s Crowd Safety Symposium (Las Vegas and San Francisco) are just over a week away. If your work involves crowds you don’t want to miss these workshops. We don’t know when the next round of classes will be, so if you’re thinking of attending you’ll want to sign up now.
