Information on health and safety requirements for holding a public event
The Events Safety Advisory Group (ESAG) has been set up to provide advice and guidance to organisers of public events in the East Riding of Yorkshire Council area. The core members of the group are senior officers from specific emergency services working in the council area (Police and Fire and Rescue Service) and council services (highways and public protection).
All comments and observation made by ESAG are always advisory. It has no statutory compulsion and organisers are under no obligation to submit information, attend ESAG meetings, or follow ESAG's advice. However, each of the constituent members has their own regulatory role and may exercise their powers independently.

Typically these would be events were attendance, including participants, would exceed 500 persons.
