All sports facility managements need a Risk Management Plan.

When we think of creating a sports facility and being either a manager or owner we have to remember it can also be a dangerous place. Meaning incidents happen and lawsuits get filed, so as an owner or manager we have to always remember to have insurance as well as proper risk management plans to protect against t lawsuits and avoid incidents.

This article demonstrates the importance of having a risk management plan in place. Constant audits and inspections are mandatory to avoid serious injury or a potential fatality. It is important for builders to perform inspections not only keep people safe, but also to maintain their own legal obligations. Building inspections further ensure that structures and equipment on site, such as scaffolds, are in good working order to prevent a court case similar to the one in this article. A case like this could result in a builder being forced out of business due to financial penalty. A fatality on a site could result in the builder being sent to prison due to legislation breach.

This article in my opinion picks up on the facts of why not just recreation centers should have a risk management plan, but it coincides with any type of facility that will keep from having lawsuits or any issues.

This article addresses the keeping the fans safe. Although it is important of maintaining good sight lines to see the game, keeping fans safe should also be a priority. Maintaining railing only to code seems to be out of date. Maybe when the code was established, the risk of them falling was lower. Raising the minimum height of the railings while still maintaining the line of sight for fans would be a good way to keep them safe while enjoying the game.

New rules: Ejected NFL fans this season will have to pay to take 4-hour online course to return to stadium

New rules: Ejected NFL fans this season will have to pay to take 4-hour online course to return to stadium | Sports Facility Management 4392999 | Scoop.it

Via ESPN:

 

The NFL is getting more serious about conduct in the stands.

 

This year, its teams are requiring any fan who gets ejected from a stadium to take a four-hour online course before they are permitted to come back into the facility again.

 

The course, designed by psychotherapist Dr. Ari Novick in tandem with the MetLife Stadium security director Daniel DeLorenzi, focuses on alcohol abuse, anger management and crude behavior. A handful of teams have used the course over the past couple seasons, but this summer, as part of a review of their best practices, every team decided to enforce the course on offending fans this season.

 

Novick said when fans get ejected from a game this year, they will be sent a letter that encourages them to apologize to the team and complete the course. If they fail to meet the requirement, and they are caught on stadium property, they are told they could be arrested for trespassing.

 

Not only do fans have to take the course if they want to come back to the stadium, they have to pay for it, too. Costs vary by team. The Detroit Lions and the Atlanta Falcons charge the least at $50, while the New England Patriots charge a league-high $100. When a fan completes the course, Novick's company forwards that information to the club.

 

Skeptics might wonder how teams are going to keep track of ejected fans from week to week. Ray DiNunzio, the NFL's director of strategic security, told ESPN the monitoring will vary by team but could at some point involve facial recognition technology.

 

Approximately 7,000 people were ejected from NFL stadiums last season. The number varied by team but some teams are known to be more strict in certain areas than others. The Oakland Raiders, for example, have a zero-tolerance policy for smoking. DiNunzio said the Raiders could eject up to 300 fans a game for lighting up...

The state would be wrong to overlook the commitment Marshall voters made in December when they approved a local sales tax option to subsidize the costly facility.

Concessions mgmt

Damien's curator insight, March 22, 2014 11:01 PM

Concessions are now a major part of sports arenas and facilities. In some arenas the food is the more popular event. With the type of crowds the concessions draw it is a must to have a managerial plan for food service at these venues.

Heightened Security at Sun Life Stadium for Orange Bowl: Police, K-9s keeping Orange Bowl attendees... "safe" (VIDEO)

Heightened Security at Sun Life Stadium for Orange Bowl: Police, K-9s keeping Orange Bowl attendees... "safe" (VIDEO) | Sports Facility Management 4392999 | Scoop.it

Before the 2013 BCS Discover Orange Bowl between Florida State and Northern Illinois kick-off at Sun Life Stadium Tuesday night, authorities were working on some extreme security measures to keep more than 76,000 thousand people safe.

 

“We’re just doing an explosion detection sweep and he’ll pick up any type of explosives that are in the area," said Miami-Dade Police Lt. Jeff Schmidinger, who was accompanied by his K-9 partner Bo. "We have bomb technicians in case he gives an alert and were just checking everything out and making sure everything is secure.”

 

With a nose about 350 times more sensitive than a human’s, Bo along with 13 more explosion detection dogs will be doing security sweeps everywhere from delivery trucks, locker rooms, stadium seats and more.

 

“Fans can expect to see them at a couple of the gates. Normally we have them at all the gates but now we have them at all the gates but today we’ll have them at a select few of the gates and the dogs will be posted there until the end of the game," Schmidinger said.

 

The security sweep is just one of the many layers of security the Miami-Dade Police department has put in place to provide a safe environment for all spectators to enjoy the game and a safe new year...
