We've got this
Even as circumstances evolve, you can plan with confidence.
The live events industry has changed drastically, and we’re committed to leading the charge in adapting, innovating, and planning for a bright future. Live experiences are invaluable to our communities, and that’s why we believe so passionately in providing safe ways to support your event.
Now & Always
COR Certified, and always prepared.
The safety of everyone onsite has always been a major priority for our team, and now more than ever we’re going above and beyond to ensure that every i is dotted and every t crossed – and then some.
As a COR certified company, each member of our team is always up-to-date with health and safety policies and certifications, and fully committed to ensuring that all risks are carefully considered.
Comprehensive Health and Safety Plans and Onsite Hazard Assessments
We never go in unprepared; detailed safety documents are created for each and every project we collaborate on.
Distancing by design
Bringing people together while keeping a safe distance?
Physical distancing is a new challenge for events, but we’re using design and technology to make distancing beautiful, safe, and maybe even fun.
First off, our team is continually monitoring the most up-to-date information regarding gathering limits and physical distancing, to make sure your event follows all current regulations and recommendations. On top of that, we’re always engaged with industry associations and with our peers and partners both here at home and around the world to explore success stories, discuss challenges, and create solutions that blend the responsible with the innovative.
Floorplans, traffic flow, and physical barriers are all carefully considered as ways to ensure proper space and separation throughout your event. We can also use technology in innovative new ways, like having guests use their own smartphones to register or even to reserve services like food and beverage.
Distancing is here to stay for the time being, and it’s our mission to make sure that safety is achieved in creative ways that honour guest experience.
Sanitization & PPE
We follow the latest science and use the best technology to build in measures that keep everyone safe.
Sanitation before and after your event
All product that arrives on-site at your event has been safely and effectively disinfected, and we sanitize everything again before returning it to our warehouse. During load-in and strike, our crew will be suited up with all recommended PPE.
Screening and hygiene
Every OneWest team member is screened daily for symptoms, and has been trained in proper use of PPE, hand-washing or sanitizing protocols, and respiratory hygiene best practices.
