At the workshops we will explain our role in respect of providing advice to sports grounds and national governing bodies, give information about our guidance and provide excellent opportunities to network and share experiences with others.

The topics covered at the workshops will include:

  • An introduction to Spectator Safety
  • The role of the SGSA
  • Working in Safety Advisory Groups

A certificate will be issued for delegates to use for their CPD. The SGSA advises that spaces are limited and suggests early booking.
