Event description

Description

For the first time ever in Toronto, learn from the world’s leading expert in Crowd Dynamics and Crowd Safety, Professor Keith Still.

Are you involved in Managing Crowds? Do you want to improve your understanding of how Crowd Flows work across your venue? Do you want to learn how to manage your guests in a safer way?

Whether you are involved in Mass Transit, Sporting Events, Music Venues or Corporate Event Management you need to attend this course to ensure you are working to best international standards.

Course Content:


Day 1

1 Introduction and overview - Lecture/Introductions

During this lecture/discussion session, we introduce the delegates to the principles and applications of crowd science to crowd risk analysis

2 The DIM-ICE risk model - Lecture/Group Exercise

In this lecture, we outline the ways in which design, information and management influences crowd behaviour in the built and complex environment.

3 Crowd dynamics and crowd risks (Static and Moving) - Lecture/Group Exercise

In this lecture, we outline the dynamics of crowds. We focus on risks associated with packing density (static crowds) and moving space requirements for crowd safety. We also outline the formation of “shock waves” in the crowd and how they develop.

4 Crowd Modelling for Events - Lecture/Group Exercise

In this lecture, we outline the principles of modelling crowds and events. We also highlight the use of models in a control room environment for early indications of potential crowd problems.

5 RAMP Analysis - Lecture

The routes, areas, movement of crowds over time and profile of the crowd form the basis of the RAMP analysis modelling technique. This focusses on the crowd dynamics approaching and departing the site. We outline the principles and applications of RAMP analysis in this lecture

6 Crowd monitoring - Lecture/Group Exercise

Monitoring a crowd and how crowds are influenced by external factors is the focus of this lecture. We highlight the problem of control room perceptions and how to enhance the detection of potential crowd problems in the control room.

Day 2

7 Introduction to queueing systems - Lecture/Group Exercise

In this lecture, we cover the principles of queueing behaviour, psychology and dynamics. We introduce the delegates to the general queueing model formula for determining queue build up over time. We focus on the balance between crowd safety and crowd security.

8 Risk Analysis - Lecture/Group Exercise

In this lecture, we outline the principles of risk analysis with specific focus on both the public’s perception of risk and the professional perception of risk.

9 Site design considerations - Lecture/Group Exercise

In this lecture, we outline the principles of using a basic connection diagram to assess crowd dynamics within a complex site.

10 Event egress analysis - Outline/Group Exercise

A site example is provided for the delegates to review and analysis using the principles of both crowd dynamics and applying the general queueing formula.

11 Optimising emergency responses - Outline/Group Exercise

Determining the resources required to provide optimal resource cover for a complex site has proven to be a very effective tool for cost effective site cover. In this lecture, we cover the principles of using connection diagrams to determine optimal, cost effective, resource deployment.

12 Crowd simulations – Lecture

In this lecture, we outline the application of crowd simulations for risk analysis with emphasis on the “good, the bad and the dangerous” use of crowd simulations for major event planning.

13 Decision support analysis - Lecture/Group Exercise

Assessing and analysing the effective use of resources, where investment is required, assessing communications and their effectiveness for events and determining key areas of vulnerabilities are covered in this lecture and class exercise.

14 Emergency situations – Lecture

In this lecture, we cover the human factors during emergency situations with specific focus on behavioural based safety, emergency communications.

15 Case study day - Outline for tomorrow’s working sessions

The delegates are encouraged to bring along their site/event materials to work through the principles and applications of the crowd safety and risk analysis tools. In this session, we outline the course work for the application day

Day 3

16 Course Summary

This is a short talk that covers the key points for the delegates work for the day.

17 Your case studies – Task Outline

The class splits into groups and applies the crowd risk analysis models to their own events/sites.

18 Delegates case studies - Group work

Delegates work through the task list and apply the risk analysis tools to their site.

19 Delegates case studies - Group presentations

Delegates have the opportunity to present their work, for group discussion in this session.

20 Course round up

A group discussion on the course materials, concludes the course. Delegates all receive a certificate of attendance, the course materials and background information.

21 How to join the MSc course at MMU via the Accreditation of Prior Experiential Learning (APEL) direct entry route.

For those delegates who want to progress their academic qualifications, we cover the requirements for the APEL route to the MSc in Crowd Safety and Risk Analysis


This course is for professionals who are involved in managing large numbers such as venue managers, event organisers or attraction managers. It is also for anyone wishing to enter this demanding area of work. This course will take you from a basic understanding of crowd safety and risk analysis in places of public assembly and work through the principles of major accident and incident causes. You will gain an in-depth understanding of crowd safety and crowd risks in the built and complex environment, establish how crowd accidents and incidents can occur, explore the underlying causes of crowd related accidents and incidences, and learn how to implement techniques for crowd safety engineering. You will learn from one of the world's leading experts in crowd safety Prof. Dr. Keith Still. His body of work includes;The US Presidential Inauguration, Royal Weddings, The Haij at Mecca Major City Cultural Celebrations.

The course will allow you to work with your site, events, venues and case studies. Prof. Still will demonstrate the principles and applications of crowd safety and risk analysis for your event, for example, how and when your crowd reaches critical mass, how the effects of design, information and management systems can influence your crowd's behaviour.

Course cost: 3 days of certified learning for only $1,650 excluding HST and booking fees. Early Bird Tickets are now Sold Out.

This course also allows provides a direct entry route into an MSc in Crowd Dynamics.
