Accompaniment to a safe reopening

The reopening of stadiums, arenas, clubs or theatres poses a great challenge to all responsible persons, operators, organisers, service providers and authorities. Not only because the opening is associated with special, unpractised conditions, but also because only a few or no events have taken place due to a whole year of lockdown. The usual, internalised routines have suddenly become more diffuse, staff at all levels of the hierarchy have left, new staff in management and at the operational levels have to be trained and familiarised with all processes. So it is not „only“ about the implementation of infection control measures, but about the „fit for purpose“ audit of the entire organisation.

We would like to support you in taking the necessary steps in a structured way and not only in mastering a reopening under Corona conditions, but also in coming out of the crisis stronger overall.

We have expanded our cooperation with the software platform Safesight to include an additional offer that supports venues in preparing for a reopening: on the basis of bundled knowledge, coordinated procedures and using the latest software solutions.

In our latest blog post, entitled „Fooball’s coming home!“, we have summarised a lot more information on how to accompany a reopening.

Phase 1 – Kick Off

  • With your help, we familiarise ourselves with your plans, procedures and processes. On site, together with you, an initial check is made to see to what extent all those involved have the same understanding of the processes or whether there is a need for action.
  • Review and implement current corona protection requirements in their processes
  • Discussion on the effects of the requirements for „normal operation
  • Transfer of first results of the Kick Off into new documents
  • Determining the next steps

Phase 2 – Orientation

  • Review of the status quo – have all the tasks from the kick-off been completed? Where do we stand, what still needs to be done?
  • Finalising outstanding documents, processes and questions
  • Creating a first draft of the Safesight platform and Implementation of first documents
  • Determining the next steps

Phase 3 – Finalisation

  • Review of the status quo – where do we stand, what still needs to be done?
  • Discussion and adaptation of the first draft of their software platform
  • Presentation of the current plans and documents in the software
  • Initial training with key stakeholders on how to use all features of the Safesight software
  • Determining the next steps

Phase 4 – Training and Evaluation 

  • Conduct two training sessions with key stakeholders on the use of the software.
  • First training session – two hours
  • Questions after the first training session, clarification / short-term adjustments
  • Second training session – two hours
  • Accompaniment of two events (6h each) to evaluate the processes and the software applications

Phase 5 – Follow-up

Six more months for topics related to the safety of your events.

  • Time to look at the experiences made in the reopening process up to that point, to identify needs for action and to work out solutions,
  • to raise further questions and continue the reorganisation where necessary
  • to make possible customisations to the software platform or to discuss other security-related topics that interest you
