It is imperative for event organizers to conduct a full risk assessment in all events irrespective of the size or the number of people involved (Jones, 2012). This is not only a legal requirement but also helps to ensure that the attendants are safe from any eventuality since the necessary measures are taken to prevent any harmful occurrence (Masterman, 2012). The event organizers will asses the venue and other aspects in order to identify any risks associated and take the necessary actions. The first risk that can come up in the gala dinner is fire which might be brought by various aspects such as electricity fault or from the kitchen. The event organizers will put in place fire extinguishers at strategic places as well as have posters that direct people to safety in case a fire breaks out (Rausand, 2013).
