MUTA, the trade association for the temporary structures and technical textiles industry, held a marquee and inflatable safety seminar at Coventry City Council’s War Memorial Park and Education Room, on 20 November.
MUTA’s health and safety officer, Chris O’Neil, gave a presentation to 30 delegates from 15 local authorities outlining MUTA and its nationally recognised safety schemes.
In addition, MUTA member Kingsmead Marquees explained to delegates how a marquee is correctly installed, and how event organisers can use the MUTA checklist to approve the structure on handover. While KL Castles, using their demonstration bouncy castle, highlighted the correct installation and safety guidelines for inflatable play equipment.
“The detailed questions put to our presenters and the lively debate amongst the delegates show the high level of engagement and genuine interest in safety issues from local authority event organisers,” said president of MUTA Tony Marsh.
“Our thanks also go to MUTA members Kingsmead Marquees and KLC Castles for their quality contributions to the day. Guests found the seminar incredibly informative and we’ve already had requests for further events early in the new year.”
