Negligence is a legal term concerning a failure to use reasonable care.
Usually when a negligent act occurs someone is injured or something had been damaged.
As event planners and venue/attraction operators we have a legal obligation to be familiar with and address known and foreseeable hazards that impact patrons, staff and vendors.
When a planner or operator fails to act reasonably, and an incident occurs, they might be sued.
A determination will be made by the courts regarding the planner or operator’s duty and degree of care.
We (industry professionals) are the experts, let’s rely on each other to address event, venue and attraction hazards.
