In the discussion of accountability in Part Two of this book, we have seen how management have a moral and legal duty of care towards participants, performers, spectators and staff alike. They have a statutory duty to deal with risks to the health and safety of people who might be affected by the operation of their facility. Following a number of high profile legal cases, there is growing awareness of the civil and even criminal liability of public assembly facilities (PAFs) management in the event of a disaster precipitated by negligent preparations. Dealing with safety hazards and the risks to which they give rise must therefore be seen as an important part of PAFs management.
