You may need to provide barriers around attractions, displays and equipment to protect the public and/or to prevent unauthorised interference.
You will need to take into account the crowd profile in regard to the type of barrier being selected.
Examples where barriers may be required include the following:
- perimeter of the site
- in front of stages,
- use in queuing systems
- in front of barbecues, catering unit
- locations where there is moving machinery; and,
- surrounding generators.
Any barrier/fencing used must be capable of withstanding any reasonably foreseeable loading. The design must be suitable to contain and protect people, including small children. Single rope barriers may not be sufficient.
