Safety

As with any public event attention must be paid to health and safety issues. You must carry out your own risk assessment to ensure the safety of all those participating. Points you should consider, along with any others that are relevant to your particular event are:-

  • A competent person must always supervise the use of the equipment
  • Check any electrical equipment is sound. Never use in an area where it could get wet. A competent person must supervise its use at all times.
  • Do not use equipment on an unstable surface
  • Keep knives sheathed and put away when not in use
  • Choose ‘sound’ apples and wash them thoroughly with fresh water before crushing
  • Signage, i.e., ‘Equipment must not be used unsupervised’, etc.

This list is not exhaustive – remember it is your responsibility to ensure the safety of those participating.
