The advice comes ahead of new Construction and Design Management (CDM) regulations, which come into effect in October 2014.
The Institution of Occupational Safety and Health's (IOSH) Sports Grounds and Events Group has said that organisers may need to adapt their health-and-safety processes to comply with the new rules.
The regulations will affect event organisers involved in the building and deconstruction of event structures.
Carl Hagemann, chair of the IOSH Sports Grounds and Events Group, said: "Event organisers and those working in safety at events really do need to realise the impact the new CDM regulations could potentially have on their day-to-day jobs.
"Potentially organisers may need to map their existing safety management processes to an unfamiliar framework; there may be more pressure to buy more tenancy time for break downs; and potentially more training could be required across the industry."
The IOSH is hosting an ‘Event Health and Safety Game Changers’ to share information and offer insights and views on the new regulations. It will take place on 12 November at Warwick Racecourse. The event will be attended by the Health and Safety Executive.
