Lagos State Safety Commission
The Lagos State Safety Commission was established in 2011 to create awareness and promotion of safety standards in the various sectors in the State, and the Events and Entertainment industry is definitely not an exception. The Lagos State Safety Commission is the Government agency interested in the overall safety of Lagosians. The agency is charged with the responsibility of ensuring proper event safety, by providing the necessary safety management tools to ensure that event centers and events are properly certified in a quick, easy and affordable manner.
The event organizer, whether individual or group will be held responsible for protecting the health, safety and welfare of everyone working at, or attending the event. It is of fundamental importance that safety management should start at the same time as planning for all the other aspects of a proposed event. It is therefore imperative that promoters, production companies, event organizers and contractor are clear as to the legal responsibilities that each may have in relation to compliance with safety regulations.
At this junction, we would like to seek the cooperation of all stakeholder in the events and entertainment industry in achieving the goal of a safer Lagos.
Mr. Lanre Mojola.
