Safety Tips for Trade Show Events
Sometimes, things don’t go according to plan. In tough situations, it’s best to always be prepared for what could happen instead of being under prepared and having to scurry around frantically looking for someone to help you. Here are a few safety tips for Trade Show Events.
- If Traveling, Cover the Safety Precautions
There are so many things that you could possibly need to cover if you’re traveling. First of all, making sure your booth materials and product get there early. That includes your team that’s going to be on the floor. It’s important that you all stay together and arrive early/on time. You don’t want to be late to putting your product out there for the masses. The rest can apply to travel tips, so make sure that you look up some of those in order to plan for your best ride over to your expo!
- Follow Set-Up Instructions Exactly
Nobody wants to sustain an injury for trying to cut around the corners. Make sure your staff is following the instructions carefully to get the booth set-up efficiently and without anyone getting hurt.
- Keep a First-Aid Kit at the Booth
Accidents happen, especially around the Booth. You could be picking up your product and down it goes, onto your foot. You really never know what’s going to happen and it’s always best to over prepare with the first aid kit nearby. You can easily bandage up a cut or even have emergency materials ready for any situation.
- Keep the Regulated Amount of Products at Your Booth
This one seems simple enough, but some people can’t help themselves to wanting to be extra prepared for their product to sell. No expo show wants the entire quadrant of stalls to catch fire because of an accident. Only take the regulated amount of products to your booth in order to keep everyone around you safe as well.
- Never Leave the Booth Unattended
Another simple one, but it happens more often than not. You’re the only one at the booth and you really need to go to the bathroom, but your partner is grabbing food because they’ve been starving all day. Don’t let the booth go unattended, you don’t know what could happen to all of your products as well as what could happen at the show that could affect your booth. You don’t want that one booth that took too many products to the show and set the place aflame with all of your personal belongings/booth.
Be prepared for the worst. Even if it doesn’t happen half of the time, when it does happen, you will be ultimately prepared for any type of situation, which means you’ll keep your staff and products healthy.
