COVID Event Safe

FPA Australia takes the health and safety of our Members and our Fire Australia attendees seriously. COVID safety has been at the forefront of our planning for Fire Australia 2021. While Fire Australia 2021 will still be the same event we all know and love, we have implemented some extra operating procedures to ensure a safe and successful event for everyone involved.

Some of the changes and additional operating procedures we have implemented in conjunction with the ICC Sydney:

Fire Australia will comply with all directives and safety measures outlined by the NSW state government and the ICC Sydney. See the below Event Safe Operating Guide from the ICC Sydney outlining all the COVID safe measures that will be implemented for Fire Australia 2021.

The International Convention Centre Sydney’s Event Safe Operating Guide

The ICC Sydney EventSafe Operating Guide is a set of operating principles enabling the safe running of events in an environment transformed by the Coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic.

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 is 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. These have been evolved into a venue specific framework, which that, together with our clients and their needs, allow us to begin confidently running in person events.
