Firework Displays and Bonfire Safety

17 Oct 2016

Firework displays and bonfires can potentially cause serious accidents. Organisers of public or semi-public displays should be aware of the responsibilities placed upon them by the Health and Safety at Work etc. Act,1974, to ensure the safety of those involved as well as the general public.

If you or your PTA are holding a bonfire or firework display on your site it must be a properly organised event run by competent operators only. Health and safety
guidance has been produced to help you plan responsibly.

Guidance on firework displays and bonfire safety can be found in the Education Health and Safety Document Library along with a firework displays risk assessment for schools to personalise.
