All Secure Standard 2.0

Following England's move to Step 4 in the Government's roadmap, the UK Operations Working Group, in conjunction with the Cross Association H&S Group met to review the All Secure Standard and produce an updated version.

The proposal outlines ‘What’ measures show organisers are taking to ensure the health and safety of all visitors, exhibitors, contractors and staff, particularly in response to COVID-19, ‘How’ these measures are being implemented, and ‘Why’ it’s an important component of the industry’s All Secure Guidelines.

The guidelines are based on information currently available on the behaviour and characteristics of the Coronavirus, the status of testing capacity, vaccine availability, and local or state guidelines on large gatherings in any particular community. As more clarity on these variables emerges, the guidelines may need to be adjusted accordingly.

*‘Step 4 does not mark the end of the need for caution and restraint. At step 4, while many of the legal restrictions that the Government has imposed through the pandemic will be lifted, cautious guidance will remain, making it clear this is not yet a return to normal. While cases are high and rising, everybody needs to continue to act carefully and remain cautious. We will continue to manage the virus and provide guidance over the coming months.’
