Risk Management for Wine Events

Got the event - Check. Music - Sorted. Great venue and wines - sweet. Got your safety plan sorted -?? Keeping your customers and staff safe is important for the sustainability of your business. Having a plan in place will ensure that your safety obligations are covered.

There are substantial commercial and reputational implications for a business when it comes to having an adverse safety incident at any time, let alone during an event. The South Australian Wine Industry Association together with the SA Country Fire Service will help you to assess the risks, devise (or revise) your plan to avoid a negative safety incident and enhance your reputation for the right reasons – that is hosting a great event, and not for the wrong reasons – media coverage because people didn’t know where to go!  

Topics Include:

Reviewing or planning an emergency plan (EP) and procedure for your workplace (PS this is a mandatory requirement under the WHS legislation), including

- Your bushfire plan; 

- Contingency & continuity planning for winery, cellar door & function centre 

- Communication offsite and onsite for staff and customers & workers in vineyards

- Whose “in charge” during the emergency, who is calling the “shots”

- Assessing what risks exist for your event 

- Who do you need consult with – your neighbours, the bus companies, event organisers, contractors, etc?

- Traffic congestion and speed limits, people crossing roads

- Industrial relations & employment implications during and following emergencies 

This workshop aims to give wine industry employers a comprehensive introduction to EP’s with a particular focus on improving dealing with bushfires (& understanding threats) and identifying and assessing other potential risks relevant to running events at your vineyard or winery.  

The workshop will be helad in the following locations:

-  McLaren Vale: McLaren Vale Motel & Hotel, Cnr Main Rd & Caffret St, McLaren Vale
