Event Planning Tools

Planning events can be a daunting task, which is why we've come up with a handy guide, and a bunch of planning tools to step you through the process:

Risk Assessment

A large part of planning any event is thinking about all the things that could go wrong and how you'll plan to reduce the risks.

USASA recommends completing a risk assessment in the planning process of every club event. Completing a risk assessment is a requirement of some grant applications, where indicated in the application.

You can find a risk assessment template here

Food and Alcohol on Campus 

Food safety training and/or a temporary liquor license must be arranged if food and/or alcohol are a part of your event.


Food Safety Training

Everybody involved in the food selling/serving process is required to complete mandatory Safe Food Handling training before any kind of foodservice. This includes everything from giving away cupcakes to cooking BBQs. You will be required to have a copy of your certificate on hand at any event where you are working with food.

The free online course and PDF certificate are available here

Alcohol Guidelines

Where alcohol is to be consumed, a completed Application for Limited Licence form (Liquor Licensing Act 1997) must accompany the FM 112 Student Group-Club-Society Function Form and be submitted to FM Assist for authorisation by the relevant Campus Facilities Manager. Please be aware applications for a Limited Licence must be lodged with the Office of Consumer and Business Services Commissioner at least 14 days before the date of the function. A Limited Licence may not be required for functions where the alcohol is being provided by a licensed caterer/business. FM Assist staff will be able to advise.

A Limited Licence by the Office of the Liquor and Gambling Commissioner may stipulate security/crowd control as a requirement. The Campus Facilities Manager will assess the application and may also deem security/crowd control a necessity. If Security staff are required this will be arranged by FM Assist and the cost will be borne by the student group/applicant.

Under no circumstances can it be assumed that the University of South Australia Security staff can be used or referred to as crowd controllers for planned events/functions.
