others when they choose not to listen. However, these activities are subject to the well-established right of colleges and universities to regulate time, place, and manner so that the activities do not intrude upon or interfere with the academic programs and administrative processes of the University. The University shall not discriminate on the basis of the political, religious, philosophical, ideological, or academic viewpoint expressed by any person. University persons and organizations may publicly assemble on campus in the designated area assigned to that particular RSO or department. At the time of the assembly, the persons assembling are permitted to be in the designated area, as long as there is no disruption to other University activities. Please note that non-RSOs may exercise freedom of expression on campus as long as the sponsoring person/organization complete the Freedom of Assembly Registration Form found online at ksustudent.com.

Department of Environmental Health & Safety Policy Event Safety Guidelines

Public assembly events involve various risk factors associated with having large numbers of people in one location. The primary risk factors are the high occupant density, occupants that are not familiar with the building, and in some cases darkness. These risks can be managed through proper event planning and management. The health, safety, and welfare of Kennesaw State University students and employees, and guests attending an event must be managed and secured for any event held on campus. The event organizers, whether students, KSU employees, an outside organization and whether planning individually or collectively have a prime responsibility of protecting the health, safety and welfare of everyone working at, attending the event or likely to be affected by the event. It is important to recognize and appreciate the fact that planning for effective health and safety management should start at the same time as the planning for all other aspects of the proposed event. The types of events held on campus vary enormously from graduation ceremonies to conferences, seminars, performances, concerts, to students’ functions, among many others. In addition, the size and complexity of each event will vary from one event to another. Nevertheless all events are covered by certain legal requirements, but the arrangements that may be needed will vary according to the event. The Department of Environmental Health, Safety & Risk Management has developed an Event Safety Guideline which provides basic standards and safety measures through which it is hoped to encourage a consistency approach to environmental health and safety management of event while leaving scope for flexibility, taking into account the nature, size and complexity of the event. If an RSO is planning an event outside of a traditional meeting or small scale event has specific questions about risk, injury, use of fire, chemicals, foam, inflatables, etc. Please be sure to review the detailed procedural guidelines online at www.kennesaw.edu/ehs/Attachments/pdf/EventGuideline_051309.pdf or contact the Department of Environmental Health & Safety: Tel: 770-499-3321 Fax: 770-420-4363 Email: ehs@kennesaw.edu
