Who We are
SAFTSE members realize that we still have a long way to go building our “Common Body of Knowledge”, but by not starting the possibilities of future restrictive, and unnecessary regulations will continue. You have a choice develop an individual company policy or join SAFTSE and pool our resources together, and we continue to develop and build safety solutions.Join SAFTSE
Safety Advocates for Tents & Special Events is a non-profit association comprised of event professionals and authorities having jurisdiction in collaboration are developing risk management solutions for today’s innovative special event industry.
What is a “Common Body of Knowledge” (CBK)? It is a collection of issues significant to the Special Event and Tent Rental Industry. SAFTSE CBK establishes a common outline of installation, client safety documents, and values which allow event specialists and authorities having jurisdiction a reference for discussion, debate, and a resolution to create event safety solutions.
Our blog is dedicated to event safety. We are starting conversations that are not about “how to make more money.” Instead, we are challenging the tent and event industry to an open discussion about “reasonable expectations” We take great pride in asking for your opinions and offering those opinions to authorities having jurisdiction.
SAFTSE is reaching out and asking you to become members to help support our endeavor to produce a”Collaborative Tent Safety Plan for Events.” Without your financial backing and input, we are concerned that our industry will continue to flounder under restrictive regulations. We need to step up and explain what our standard of reasonable expectations are and the threshold of limitations.
