RISK ASSESSMENT

Expo 2020 Dubai is committed to protecting the health, safety and wellbeing of all staff, volunteers, contractors, service providers, visitors and guest groups. This commitment is central to our operations and embedded within our planning for school group visits as well. We have conducted a careful examination of the full site and compiled a comprehensive risk assessment document that identifies the different risks and vulnerabilities as well as the appropriate control measures to minimize or eliminate them.

A copy of the Risk Assessment is provided to all coordinators upon registration. Should you require another copy, please email us: schools@expo2020.ae
