HSE publishes revised firework display guidance

HSE InfoLine : 06 October, 2005  (Company News)
The Health and Safety Executive has published updated guidance on organising public firework displays safely.
The Health and Safety Executive has published updated guidance on organising public firework displays safely.

The guidance Giving your own firework display: How to run and fire it safely, which was first published in 1995, has been revised to reflect significant changes in the laws governing the supply, possession, transport, storage and use of fireworks that may now have an effect on the way displays are organised.

The 20-page booklet is aimed at organisers, such as sports clubs, parish councils and parent/teacher associations, who intend to launch the fireworks themselves, rather than contract specialist display operators, but have no specialist knowledge. In particular, it contains sensible advice on selecting a site, including how it should be set up, and making available suitable facilities. These include equipment for putting out small fires and an adequate number of stewards.

In addition, the guide offers a list of contacts that organisers should consider liaising with before an event. It also provides information on crowd control, storing fireworks safely prior to the display and tips on building secure bonfires. Finally, the booklet features general information on handling fireworks during set up and firing.
