SHAD Event

The fifth ADIPS Safety and Health Awareness Day is to take place to coincide with the Hull Fair on 5 October 2016. This free event is being held in the New Walton Club and is dedicated to raising awareness and providing advice and information on health, safety and risk.

The day is being organised by ADIPS on behalf of the Amusement Device Safety Council (ADSC) who oversee the ADIPS ride inspection scheme and industry safety matters.
The event will include talks by a range of technical experts, as well as having Health and Safety and Insurance experts on hand to give advice. Attendees will also have the chance to raise any questions and get answers on the day.

The aim of the day is to provide an opportunity for showmen to get advice. Those who attend on the day can expect to benefit from a range of useful information.

Sessions chosen for the event concentrate on common health and safety issues affecting the operation of fairground rides, and give advice on working safely and how to control and avoid risks. The topics to be covered are electrics, maintenance, inflatable play equipment, how to protect against insurance claims and an update on various topical issues from the Health and Safety Executive.

This is the fifth event organised by ADIPS for showmen and the third to be delivered alongside a fair to make it more accessible to showmen and to increase the number of showmen attending the events.

Advanced booking is not required for operators at Hull Fair, who are being asked to just turn up on the day. Other showmen who wish to attend need to register for the event. Full details of this can be found on the ADIPS website.

Attendees will receive a certificate of attendance. Refreshments will also be served throughout and lunch will be provided.

It is hoped that those who attend have a useful and beneficial day, and would recommend others to attend.
