SkillsActive and SGSA invites you to support the Spectator Safety National Occupational Standards review

Late 2017, SkillsActive and SGSA with support from key stakeholders launched a project to review the National Occupational standards (NOS) in spectator safety.

After the initial steering group meeting in November 2017, industry experts were recruited who helped SkillsActive and SGSA to write new standards and redraft the existing SkillsActive owned Spectator Safety standards.

These redrafted NOS were submitted to the regulators for approval in late July and following on from a second round of redrafting and fine tuning were approved as draft NOS ready for consultation in early October 2018.

As part of the consultations, an online survey has been prepared that cover both the newly redrafted standards and some more specific details regarding the developments.
