There is a growing concern across the outdoor industry that events will struggle to take place safely with all sectors reporting shortages of workers.  

Coming immediately after the damaging lockdowns that crippled much of the sector, there are concerns that some businesses may not survive this summer.

There are particular concerns about shortages of properly trained security staff and the risks this poses for some events in particular.   Shortages of equipment are also a concern.

Organisers are advised to plan well ahead and to consider alternative ways of working where possible.
