Taking safety for live events seriously

The TechPro commitment to flawless delivery of live events isn’t just about our ability to deliver the high-quality video, audio, lighting, set and staging our clients expect when we are appointed to a project.

We always deliver our services in full compliance with H&S regulations and always ensure that the safety of every one of our team, our appointed contractors and anyone else affected by our operations is our number 1 priority.

TechPro has implemented a positive Health & Safety (H&S) culture throughout the business and this positive approach instils confidence in our clients that corners are never cut when we are around.

Good H&S management is never “completed”, and we never rest with striving to improve our processes and approach. We have recently teamed up with Ben Harding and his team at ESS Consultants to help us re-evaluate our existing processes and advise our senior team. ESS are an always available resource for all the TechPro team for expert H&S advice and guidance.

ESS Consultants is a specialist Health & Safety consultancy, providing expert advice exclusively to the live events industry and Ben Harding is renowned throughout the industry for his experience and in-depth knowledge.

Democracy drives positive change

TechPro appoints an H&S representative from within the business, always voted for by the people for the people in a secret ballot, Senior Managers are not on the ballot paper!

Regular H&S committee meetings chaired by ESS and held with the entire TechPro team are an opportunity for any team member to be able to raise any concerns they may have whilst going about their day to day activities in the workplace. We encourage everyone to have their say in an open and engaging environment.

“The team here at ESS Consultants work closely with TechPro to help them monitor, review and improve their safe operating systems of work, which is a critical part of their health and safety management. We audit their on-site delivery and operations at their warehouses, which helps instil confidence in their clients that a TechPro project is a safe project and that their choice of AV service provider will only enhance their reputation with their clients.”Ben Harding, ESS Consultants

TechPro operate a zero-tolerance culture to accidents and near misses. Our continual focus on H&S together with our partnership with ESS Consultants, ensures incidents are always maintained to the absolute minimum.

Safety is paramount

Each event we support is supplied with a Project Safety Manual and relevant RAMS and specific documentation. All is readily available onsite and easily accessed by our Project Managers from a cloud-based event safety file.

Our Project and Technical Managers are First Aid trained and all hold the IOSH Managing Safely qualification, ensuring we have the necessary knowledge and skills to manage health and safety with confidence.
