Intending Your Facility’s Safety Audit Checklist
Apart from the important items listed above it is possible that there are additional requirements for your theatre that you need to include on your facility safety audit checklist. Here are a few suggestions of things you may want to consider in your checklist:
Emergency evacuation plan:
A clear and up-to-date plans for evacuations in an emergency is important to ensure the safety of your patrons as well as your employees. It should include clearly defined evacuation routes, as well as methods for helping people with disabilities. Also, it must contain a method of tracking each employee and patron during an emergency. Regular fire drills are a great idea in order to make sure everyone knows the evacuation plan.
First aid kits:
It is recommended to have a selection of first-aid kits that are appropriately stocked in the theatre. The kits must contain basic items like band-aids, gauze, and over-the-counter medicine for pain. A basic training for employees on first aid is a great suggestion to be prepared in case of situation of emergency.
Security of your theatre in particular during nighttime performances, is important for the security of your staff as well as your patrons. The entire area needs to have enough lighting, for example, parking lots or exterior walkways. Installation of security cameras, or hiring security personnel can help deter crime acts and increase security for everyone. An organized plan is vital in the event of an emergency or incident that may arise.
Identifying and addressing any potential environmental hazards, such as asbestos or mold, is critical to the security of your workers and customers. The entire area needs to have enough air circulation.
