The HSE has agreed the following endorsement for the Purple Guide:

“The Purple Guide has been written by The Events Industry Forum in consultation with the events industry. Its aim is to help those event organisers who are duty holders to manage health and safety, particularly at large-scale music and similar events. The Health and Safety Executive was consulted in the production of the workplace health and safety parts of this publication.

Following this guidance is not compulsory, unless specifically stated, as some elements go further than the minimum you need to do to comply with workplace health and safety law. If in doubt you should refer to the requirements of the law at http://www.hse.gov.uk”
