This Leisure Expert Panel has been formed to bring together the stakeholders and influencers who hold interest in the way in which the leisure industry manages health, safety, security and risk and whom will either be subject to scrutiny of its management systems or make decisions on liability (both criminal and civil). These persons will already be involved in performing a management, advisory, representative or regulatory role within the leisure industry.
The formation of expert panels is supported by government and in February 2014 a joint statement was issued by the Better Regulatory Delivery Office (BRDO), the Chartered Institute of Environmental Health (CIEH) and the Trading Standards Institute (TSI) identifying the need for a partnership approach of their regulatory professions and to support and empower expert panels.
The LEP Exec Committee individually represents each influencer and stakeholder group of the industry for a 12 month period - Insurance Risk Management, Regulation, Legal Advisor, Industry Advisor and Operator, a Secretariat and a Chair person.
