Outdoor sporting venues risk review

Outdoor sporting venues take many forms and can involve gatherings of thousands of people. Even though the events themselves may be held in the open air, covered facilities will also be provided for catering, hospitality, press and other services. There will almost always be grandstands, and for major events the permanent facilities may be supplemented by temporary structures to provide additional refreshment outlets, seating and toilets.
