The ICC Sydney EventSafe Operating Framework is a set of operating principles that will enable the safe running of events in an environment transformed by the Coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic. The launch of EventSafe signals the readiness of ICC Sydney to recommence running events, pending the further roll back of Federal and State restrictions. The comprehensive set of protocols spans 16 key areas of event management and integrates best practice from parent group ASM Global’s VenueShield – a program of the most advanced hygienic safeguards, informed by public health authorities, medical and industry experts – which will be deployed in ASM Global’s 325 worldwide facilities. The framework also operates within the safety protocols of Safe Work Australia’s Codes of Practices, which underpins how ICC Sydney works under the Work Health Safety law and, more recently, the COVID-19 Safe Workplace Principles. The plan further draws on ICC Sydney’s work with national and international industry bodies, to develop industrywide protocols in response to COVID-19.
