When Accidents Happen In Convention Centers
Convention centers such as the Raleigh Convention Center are massive buildings that regularly host tens of thousands of people. Like all other property owners, the owners of these convention centers have a responsibility to keep the property safe for the people they invite into it.
Convention Center Risks For Attendees
There are several types of risks that those attending events at a convention center might encounter:
- Temporary hazards — Any public space can have a variety of hazards crop up such as spilled liquids, debris, unsecured entrance mats and other issues. It is the property owner’s responsibility to regularly monitor for such hazards and to take all appropriate actions to remove or minimize the risk these issues pose to patrons.
- Structural deficiencies — In addition to temporary hazards, property owners need to conduct regular maintenance. Defective stairs, ceiling tiles, lighting, flooring and other mechanical issues can cause serious injury if they are not repaired in a timely fashion.
- Security risks — If there is a heightened risk for violence or crime in the area where the convention center is located, the property owner has a responsibility to take steps to ensure patrons are safe. This could mean that steps such as installing and ensuring the good working order of proper lighting, security cameras and the hiring of sufficient security staff may be necessary.
