HEALTH & SAFETY (TRADERS)
1 Market Stalls and Gazebos are supplied by a registered supplier who hold individual liability insurance for their work.

See guidance http://www.townandcountrymarkets.co.uk/market-traders/market-traders-insurance.html Addition: Please Note: following an incident occurring at one of our events involving a clothes rail blowing over in the wind. Traders are asked to ensure that any rails are securely attached together (if there are more than 1 rail) with gaffer tape or tie-wraps to avoid rails being able to fall in the wind. In addition that these are secured to the gazebo and weighed down with weights. Similar precautions should be taken by indoor traders too.
