CGC Event Marquees achieves MUTA accreditation

CGC Event Marquees is pleased to now be an official member of MUTA, an organisation promoting best practice in the marquees, tents and structures industry, for the benefit of the general public.

MUTA membership identifies CGC Event Marquees as being amongst the best in the business and provides an accredited assurance that you, the customer, can rely on the team to be legal, decent, honest, truthful and to consistently provide a professional standard of workmanship.

“The process of joining MUTA has been a long one. It began back in April of last year with an inspection of our Marquee warehouse facility and a subsequent review of our training procedures, health and safety policies and a look at how we store our materials. Changes were advised and myself and our Marquee Director, Mark Jones-Locke, have addressed those areas that needed immediate improvement. Working with SMG’s health and safety officer, we have developed a working environment that conforms to MUTA’s codes of conduct. We have implemented changes in the way staff are introduced to the company and the introduction of site inductions has meant that our staff are much better informed when it comes to the erecting of marquees. MUTA runs a structure safe course that we will be attending and has skills cards for all workers, providing CGC with a much stronger work force. MUTA also offers assistance in terms of the many regulations that are involved with putting up marquees, including templates for health and safety documentation that will enable us to provide a safer working environment for both staff and clients.” – Darren Stone, Marquee Manager
