Halo Solutions is now an official partner of the Safe Event Scheme. The scheme supports event owners, operators, venues, rights holders and event planning professionals to ensure events are planned, delivered and managed safely and responsibly. The scheme includes a certification; events can be independently verified to demonstrate they follow current guidance on COVID-19 and have the right infrastructure and management in place to keep everyone safe, and that they do not compromise public health or place an undue burden on civil resources such as healthcare and the police.
Halo Solutions’ Halo System is a cloud-based command, control, communications and intelligence platform for incident management, designed by UK emergency service and counter-terrorism industry professionals. The system has been used at events including the Cricket World Cup 2019 and Ed Sheeran’s Divide tour, as well as by numerous stadium venues, government bodies, local authorities and the military. Halo Solutions also provides threat management consultancy and training courses. Its products are used by police services across the UK, as well as by many others across the globe.
“We’re delighted to be joining the Safe Event Scheme as an official partner,” said Lloyd Major, CEO and co-founder of Halo Solutions. “It is even more of a privilege to join right at the beginning and play our part in supporting the scheme from the very outset. This is an incredible concept that I can see going from strength to strength and one which will, without doubt, become the standard that events are proud to associate with. There is nothing else like this for our industry and it’s one of those superb initiatives that can only benefit everyone and do some real good.”
“We are delighted to welcome Halo Solutions as a partner,” said Carl Thompson, project lead of the Safe Event Scheme. “They offer a global-leading solution aimed at improving crowd safety at events. Through creating greater efficiencies and effectiveness in operational management, the events sector can mitigate its historic reliance on civil resources. This empowers a more responsible and sustainable industry. We are working with Halo Solutions to help further develop the Safe Event Scheme resources and accreditation process to ensure it meets the needs of local stakeholder agencies, such as councils, city halls and safety advisory groups. Our vision is for the Safe Event Scheme to offer these critical partners with an assured and efficient means of evaluating the safety arrangements for events held within their jurisdiction.”
