Anyone organising an apiary meeting or similar event has a duty of care to take the necessary precautions to ensure the safety of those taking part. Formally this means doing a risk assessment. Most of this is simple commom sense but if there is an incident it is important to be able to show that the risks were assessed and that all reasonable action were taken to minimise them Somerton Division has developed Risk Assessment and Check List which they use to cover such events.
