Event Safety


Special events, meetings, conferences, training sessions, and other occasions bring about the gathering of people for information, education, celebration, fun, and food. Each event involves a multitude of details, some of which carry the potential of presenting safety hazards that range from incorrect food temperatures to blocking an emergency exit. These unintentional hazards can escalate into an immediate danger or an after-the-occasion illness for individuals attending the event.   

These guidelines were developed to ensure the purpose of the gathering is completed in a manner that promotes fire, life and food safety. It provides event planners with practical suggestions and information that complies with regulatory requirements for various aspects of their event.

If you have any questions regarding these guidelines, please contact Environmental Health and Safety (EHS) at x8040 (713-221-8040) or visit us in S621 of the One Main Building. EHS is available to work with you to apply these guidelines and create safe solutions for your event.
